I did ask me - without any answer - why You threw off this feature of
slur attachment-offset.

For me lilypond would be missing some important, if it wouldn't be
possible to change the endpoints of slurs in an easy way.

Normally I would say, okay, let's sponsor it (*), if there is no other
way. But for the moment my personal situation doesn't allow me to spend
anything, I'm sorry.

(*) But nevertheless, I think, that the attachment-offset of Slurs might
    be a standard implementation of lilypond.
    Missing it after 2.2.x was the main reason for me to stop
    typesetting ... :-(

And now it is very hard to hear, that in the 2.6.x lilypond is missing
this again. :-(

Don't misunderstand me:
I still think, that lilypond is a very great work, and my heart is full
of thanks to You (and Jan) for creating and developping it! :-)

Best Regards           Roland
