The last check-in has a template for three-column text at the end (or,
indeed between movements or beginning). It calls up inkscape (or
whatever program the user chooses) to edit the template, pasting in the
words desired, changing fonts, sizes (colors even!).

I have used similar code to allow the user to create new ornaments, and
to re-define existing ornaments. So with inkscape the user can design a
new trill sign which LilyPond will then use to typeset all the trills in
an already entered score. So the appearance of already-created scores
can be altered (for example to resemble more closely old typesetting
styles or create modern signs).

This is in git now, I think it will be the star feature of 1.1.8
