Lilypond and MusiXTeX (w/PMX) are my two real options right now. I was
hoping to use the Common Music suite because of it's real midi support. The
other two systems barely produce midi. No repeats, etc... Now I am also
seriously considering Pmw (http://www.quercite.com/pmw.html) because of
it's beautiful output and also it's sheer speed. It will generate a full
page score instantly, but it too is simple midi, no repeats, etc...
