Personally, I find it strange that we don't have things like \- and \_
be assignable as music functions, namely
"-" = #(define-music-function ...

For plain |, we use pipeSymbol, but it would make more sense if this
"\\|" = #...
even though it would be a bit strange to define the thing to be called
without backslash by defining it with backslash (the usual manner is the
other way round).  But I have not been able to think of something better

Anyway, defining the same command to do things analogously but
differently all the same in lyrics mode and markup strings...

Need to think about it.
