I have the impression that a very professional notation tool, does not 
gain much from a Graphical User Interface. Code writing is fatser than 
moving around the mouse.
Maybe it would be less work to think about a common output format that 
allow users to import the score into another software (like rosegarden 
or similia), or from another software into cm....

I would see with great pleasure a good linux MIDI output and.... 
input... and, that is maybe useless, a possible interaction with clm,
something like (cmn stff treble (clm-notep (violin ...)... this raise of
course various problems, i.e. interpretation of symbols like legato
etc....which make me think that such development would be **easier**
by connecting cmn with cm first... so this would be a really tight 
connection between clm/cm/cmn.

the second problem that this solution would raise would be about a more
solid clm real time section -that's why clm-notep ..;-) - well i don't
know how it works with other platform and lisps, with linux and cmucl,
clm real time does not look like a completly developed feature.

This is less than a suggestion...is what i would love to see, just out
of my mouth without thinking deeply about possible technical problems.

Certainly i think, on my side, that it would pay back more on developing 
these kind of features rather than working on a user interface tool.
