Greetings Mats,

Hehehe... As soon as I can find a couple minutes to work on the
"LilyPond Report" again, I guess this will make the "Quote of the
Week" :-)

I guess it is, since when you add lyrics they're aligned with the
first instanciation of "myvoice":

\relative c' <<
 \new Staff \new Voice = myvoice { c d8 e f4 g8 f }
 \new Staff \context Voice = myvoice { g8 f e d g4 f }
 \new Lyrics \lyricsto "myvoice" \lyricmode { one two three four five six }

However, I do wonder how this context can be named internally...
