It would have to work under similar constraints as those I described for
the LaTeX solution, due to using TeX.  Of course, being already
implemented is a definite advantage.

An advantage of a LaTeX-internal solution would be that it should work
seemlessly with preview-latex
<URL:http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/preview-latex.html>.  This part
of the Emacs toolchain has not been ported over to Context.

It should be possible also to integrate regular lilypond-book operation
into AUCTeX/preview-latex, but while it is likely less work than the
LaTeX-internal approach, it has not been done yet either, and the
LaTeX-internal approach has advantages with other toolchains as well.
