Spanners like brackets and slurs, that are positioned relative to notes, shrink to cover the first and last notes in their span. I suspect the reason was to find some fixed positions as starting points for placing the bracket or slur.


Occasionally we need to place a slur or bracket like this, requiring a fake note
 \times 2/3 { \once\hideNotes e4 e e }

and maybe the code setting the brackets is now good enough to handle setting one end on empty space.


Can we call this type -Enhancement? because it asks LilyPond to set brackets on anchors where she had not previously tried to set them.
