Wow!  I think it's an excellent idea!

I've done settings of Tanith Lee and Fritz Leiber, but no DWJ (except a tune
for the Angel of Caprona, which went in the birthday scrapbook).  I'm happy
to have a go at setting any DWJ filk lyrics that people write.  Or perhaps
one could filk some existing songs.

Hmm.  I wonder what the Hymn to the One is like, that's traditionally sung
in the lawschool chapel...

Hey!  Someone please write the words to "Undying at Midsummer"!
