I lost the original thread, but there was a posting recently about someone dreaming about an iPad music/score app using Lilypond. But the way Apple thinks about publishing and licensing 3rd party software does not match very well with GNU open source ideas.

If you mean a complete and usable LilyPond on the iPad, that's probably not really viable, see this report on porting TeX to the iPad (and LilyPond AFAIK works similar to TeX):
(Abstract: It's possible to run TeX, but typing is a pain, and due to Apple's restrictions file handling is very ugly, and you must close the app after every compile run.)

The other idea was AFAIR a MIDI player with note display - a completely different animal.
