Hey, don't be rude!
I need the same thing :)

I think LP is useful because I don't *always* want that, but just
as *one* of the outputs.

For example, I produced a sheet with  melody, harmony, bassline,
chords and lyrics.
For a single staff, it fits 2 A4, so it's nice and short.
With all staffs it needs 6 pages...

So, I was thinking I'd have a bass/chords/lyrics version (2 pages)
and a drum/chords/lyrics version (2 pages) and a melody/chords/lyrics
version (2 pages) and maybe (why not) a blank/chords/lyrics.
The latter would be nice to have to let me take notes with pencil
over the printed pages, for fixing interesting things I may find 
while playing. Could also have a blank piano staff for that.

Now, the problem with the above is that I couldn't handle to make
the documetned "Devnull" approach work to hide the meoldy but still
have lyrics aligned. Does anyone have an example of that ?

The .ly file with all staffs (forgive me, drums are just a stub):
