Yes, permission given to implement \applycontext :-)

     \applycontext #(lambda (translator-group)   ... )

should a 0-duration music expression. The function is applied to the
current context, once the interpreting process hits it.  This allows
all kinds of manipulations, like setting & getting properties, moving
around contexts, etc. It might require some more C++ exports to
scheme, but you get the idea

(of course, if you have a better suggestion, it is welcome as well.)
