Does that mean I should simply put the scripts in a /scripts/lilyglpyhs 
directory and wait for the distribution to create wrapper scripts for 
it? And how would I refer to these beforehand?
(Of course I have written in the manual that in order to use the scripts 
one has to have Python installed (of course that's not necessary for 
_using_ the package)).
