Issue 665: Request: MusicXML backend

New issue report by v.villenave:
This feature has been proposed by Reinhold Kainhofer on -devel:

More recently, an user shared his experience on -user:

Some highlights:

Han-Wen: "The last time we looked at this, I think the resolution was to
dump a music stream from LilyPond and postprocess that."

Reinhold: "unfortunately, the stream does only contain the musical content
in time-sorted order. MusicXML, however, also contains (or rather, can
contain) full information about page layout, breaks, object positioning and
similar settings [...] Since Lilypond produces a layout that is far
superior, I'd also like to include that information in
the xml files..."

Han-Wen: "you would probably have to use some sort of dual approach, where
you store the stream, label each event, and then you trace back the grobs
during output stage to their originating events. You can use the ordering
from the stream to output the XML elements in the correct order."
