It's the 'etc.' bit that bothers me in that this is not a simple one line

There is a very good section in the Learning Manual

http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.13/Documentation/learning/the-internals-reference-manual

That walks you through various scenarios (in fact the first one is a 'slur').

And this should show you how to find which context and grob you need to modify
for a particular object.
