That's good to hear - I occasionally create a command in Denemo and
wonder if anyone has ever used it...

I already created a simple editor (it just collects up the lines of the
verses and puts them at the end in a single column, interspersed with
the number of the verse). It's under the lyrics menu.
But, in the end, a simple editor would generate some simple cases. The
complex editors that are out there can do more, and there are many who
have built up expertise using them. While never as good as an integrated
program, I think this could be useful. (In fact, I have a case where the
simple collecting of verses does not cut it, because there is a
verse/refrain stucture to it ...).
As you probably know I have created a (simple) title page creator from
Nicholas' work, but this same eps stuff could be used instead to
generate a title page with any amount of graphics stuff designed in the
user's favorite program.

I hope this makes sense!
