Lilypond vs Petrucci, Round II

I said in the round one of this comparison that I'd let you know if I got any useful answers to my query on the lilypond list. One of the list contributors got interested in the problem and wrote me a new layout block that does indeed look a lot more like what Petrucci does. You can read the gory details on the list.


Here's the first page of the Petrucci facsimile of Adieu mes amours by Josquin:

And here's the cantus part lilypond produces now that I have the new layout block:

And here's the tenor part from lilypond with the new layout block:

    Mom got to be quite a rabid fan, though…Everything I did was sensational as far as she was concerned. Now my father, as far as *he* was concerned I never got a hit. If I got a single, my mother
    would scream, “Willie’s hit a triple.” And Pop would say, “Ach, the guy should have caught it.”
    — Willie Kamm, quoted in “The Glory of their Times” by Lawrence S. Ritter
