With my choir we're doing lots of highly syncopated music this year.  I am
trying to rewrite my voice parts (with the lyrics) while having the beatcounts
printed on top of the staff in their proper location with respect to the
syncopated notes.  Could someone give me a few hints on where to look for
starters (i.e. 'invisible' voice/staff contexts with 'visible' 1, 2, 3, 4,
markers? or what? - the \addlyrics feature seems to complicate things a bit.)
You can give explicit durations to the numbers like this:

melody = \relative c' { c8. d16 ~ d8 e ~ e16 d c b ~b 4}
\score {
  \new StaffGroup <<
    \new Staff {
      \new Voice { \melody}
    \lyricmode { \new Lyrics { "1"4  "2" "3" "4" } }
