 Of course, you could claim that users of lilypond-book should use
cygwin, but in my opinion, that's just a good way to scare Windows
users from even trying LilyPond.

My preference is actually scaring people into using pdflatex. PDFLaTeX is much saner approach than the DVI/DVIPS/PS2PDF route.

Fine with me! However, lilypond-book currently fails in several ways
in Windows.

- Problem 1: The python package is broken, so lilypond-book fails with:
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'pipe'

can you send me the stack trace for that, I can't see where pipes are used.

Double quotes seem to work much better and shouldn't cause any problems in Linux and OSX(?), therefore I proposed a patch in http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-lilypond/2006-03/msg00182.html
 but it was never accepted.

can you apply that patch?
