LyricHyphen: Use markup as hyphen, introduce 'fuzzy-metrics

We use a LyricHyphen grob constructed from rounded-boxes.
That is fine with a lot of fonts, but it is ugly if you use
e.g. Minion, a font that resembles handwriting, or a font
of the Fraktur family.

If a song with multiple stanzas is engraved, the position of
hyphens is far from optimal, especially at the start and end
of lines.

This patch

As long as neither 'text nor 'fuzzy-metrics is used, the output
is identical or similar to the old style. The number of hyphens
used might change as padding is always obeyed, it might change
as we reserve enough space at the end of a line for a shortend
rounded-box hyphen. That way a hyphen never will stick out to
the right of a system.

We also silently correct some minor/coding problems:
