Hello Lilypond-Fans,

I have a question: Does Lilypond have an API that can be simply called from
other programs to render some markup (stored as a string) into a SVG file?

We want to use Lilypond in an Unity app/game, wich will be used by many
musicians and thus requires some decent staff rendering. We basically
program in C#, but there is an easy bridge to interface with C/C++
libraries. So calling an API should not be a huge problem, but does it even
exist and is documented somewhere?

I asked in the IRC a few hors ago, and received a brief "No, it doesn't
exist". Bit is that really the abrupt end of the story, or is there some
other possibility to call Lilypond from an external program?
