I did my horizontal placement can be done with #:translate.  What
snippet are you thinking of?  I didn't realize there was enough
material to make an "exhaustive" study of the subject.

I suppose I could have gone with make-dynamic-custom instead of
-extra.  But that name is really just for the style sheet; the
actual usage would just call \fespr or whatever.

I agree; I don't think the current approach is ideal.  I
definitely like the idea of detecting it automatically, though!
I'll take a longer look at it tomorrow.

The one tricky thing is the horizontal placement: for things like "mf
dolce", I wanted the "mf" aligned with the notehead.  For something
like "sub p", should the "p" be aligned with the notehead, or should
the "sub" be aligned?
