Ultimately, it would be great to have two settings:
1. glyphs which "don't count" for width calculations (e.g., the LyricText 
"amazing—" should be centred as if it were just "amazing"); and,
2. glyphs which "don't count" for left-edge determination (e.g., all 
consonants, if you want vowel-aligned lyrics).

Just wanted to throw my feature request into this thread.  =)
