Someone on IRC suggested a separate voice with hidden notes, just for
the slurs.  I ended up going with this approach because it yielded the
best visual result:

      \new Voice = "intro_slurs" {
        \override NoteColumn #'ignore-collision = ##t
        \relative c' {
          \key f \major
          <f g>1 ~ | <f g>4

Then, the other voices just started out with a { s1 | } ...
