Well, you might remember that there is code
<https://sourceforge.net/p/testlilyissues/issues/4509/> that improves
the current LyricExtender syntax.
Uh no, it doesn't?  It _removes_ the current LyricExtender syntax, then
tries to do the right thing by itself.

Interpreting user input sensibly and ignoring user input altogether are
not the same thing.

Yes, it removes the current LyricExtender syntax and automatically adds extenders where the notation standard requests extenders. But the user is free to override this behavior at any time. The patch also fixes some bugs (e.g. extenders should not extend under grace notes belonging to the next moment) and allows to force extenders at places where current lilypond simply is unable to generate extenders and requires the user to use the underscore character from the lyric font as a poor replacement ...
