In my opinion, the issue it addressed is much more annoying than regression

I beg to disagree: it fixes a special case, but breaks extender lines in

I offered to fix this regression a few months ago, and sent a couple of messages to lilypond-devel asking for help in determining the correct approach to take. Unfortunately, my requests went unanswered (and my second request, sent a month after the first, was rebuked as being too demanding, even though I wasn't asking for someone to fix my pet issue for me but was asking for advice from those more experienced with the code so that my patch wouldn't be DOA).

I did not meant to offense you, but have your opinion: I have no idea of the background of this modification. But melisma extender lines are just broken
now, this is something to consider. I can live without seeing your patch
reverted in master: I work with a custom LilyPond anyway, I just reverted it on my working copy. But I don't think LilyPond is better now, regarding vocal
