I meant both ;-)

I didn't even knew there was a version of t-lilypond on CTAN  
(overlooked that in Steffen's post).
(It's a known problem that ConTeXt versions on CTAN are often  
outdated, too.)
I should update the contextgarden version, but I wanted to wait if  
Aditya could find the error with Ruby texexec and clean up the code a

I was tired of the version statements in every snippet, so I let the  
module add a version statement.

It's impossible to take care of different LilyPond versions in one  
module, so I always try to stick with (and change syntax for) the  
latest - "always" meaning "everytime I work at a songbook".

LilyPond is a rather fast moving target, like ConTeXt, so some code  
becomes old very soon...
