using \markup for #'("text" . "") (was: keep finger down)

To set the text for TextSpanner, one does
  \override TextSpanner #'edge-text = #'("foo" . " ")

How can you use \markup{ foo } instead of "foo" ?  Judging from
11.2.1 Markup construction in scheme, I thought that this would work

  \override TextSpanner #'edge-text = #'( (markup "foo") . "")

but it doesn't.  :(

Christopher -- once we find out how to do this, try adding a
\hspace #1
to the end of your finger string ("1 ").  It may not be ideal, but it
should work.

I think this is the best way; hence me question.
