Developers, it would be nice to get some clarification on the
alignment of different markups!

For some strange reason, the following seems to work.
{ c'^\markup{"foo" \hspace #0.0 } c'^\markup{"bag" \hspace #0.0 } }

It's not at all clear to me how the alignment is handled here.
Some related issues were brought up in

What's the best way to get two markup strings (once containing a gjpqy, the other without such characters) to align? In the example below, the "bag" is typeset
higher than "foo", because the "g" requires space under the line.
The extra space seems to correspond to 0.4 staffspaces, so I _could_ align them
by doing
\once \override TextScript #'extra-offset = #'(0 . 0.4)
but this seems like a non-ideal solution.

{ c'^"foo" c'^"bag" }
