    I think you should re-consider this comment: "The other option is ditching
    LilyPad and doing a Darwin-only version of LilyPond, assuming that we can
    do this with suitably free components.", by David Kastrup. I don't think
    many people are using the limited editor LilyPad. There are a lot of better
    tools available (Frescobaldi). I'd rather have a native LilyPond without
    the *Pad, than having to compile it myself or rely on a Docker solution.
This implies that the only reason we need Apple's SDK is for compiling the 
LilyPad editor.  Is that true?

Is it possible to create a Mac app bundle without the SDK?

We currently have a MacPorts way to install LilyPond on 64-bit MacOS systems, a 
Homebrew way to install LilyPond on 64-bit MacOS systems, and Marnen's work on 
a 64-bit .app bundle for MacOS systems.

I really prefer the .app bundle, because it is path-independent and it makes it 
easy for me to have multiple versions installed.  As far as I know, only the 
.app version can be delivered as a binary and installed any place I'd like to 
put it.

If it were possible to have a MacOs .app bundle that could be created on 
non-Apple hardware, even if all the app did was open the .ly file in TextEdit, 
I'd be all over that.  And I think I have some time this summer to try to make 
it work.  But I don't know enough about developing on the Mac to know if this 
is possible.  Does anybody else?
