(To bug-lilypond: why isn't InstrumentName #'X-offset-callbacks
set by default, so you can just set self-alignment-X to get
center or right aligned instrument names? )

The only solution that has appeared in the mailing list archives, as
far as I know, is to use Text Markup commands, such as
  \set Staff.instrument = \markup{ \right-align "Viola"}
for each instrument name.

However, I just did some trial and error and managed to set the
alignment for all staves using

    \context {
      \override TimeSignature #'style = #'C
      \override InstrumentName #'self-alignment-X = #right
\override InstrumentName #'X-offset-callbacks = #`(,Self_alignment_interface::aligned_on_self)

I would like to have, as staff group name, "Horns", and I, III and II, IV
right aligned as staff names.
Thanks in advance for any help.
