If I understand you correctly, you want to add a new articulation script 
(rather than patching the code for dynamic marks).  That's quite easy, if 
you are a little bit familiar with metafont.  For that purpose, you should

* add the articulation sign to the feta font; see file mf/; 
  I guess the direction (up/down) does not matter for espressivo marks, 
  hence a single character "espressivo" should suffice; you may want to 
  have a look at the sforzatoaccent as an example of a similar character 
  that is already in the font;

* tell lily about your articulation sign by adding it to the file 
  scm/script.scm (twice the same character "espressivo" for both 
  directions, up and down);

* add a handy shortcut to the file ly/

* for testing, add it to input/test/

* for documentation, add it to the Articulations section (currently 
  section 5.7.8) of the user manual; see 

And, whenever changing feta-schrift, don't forget to clean the font such 
that all font files will be rebuilt; otherwise, you will not see any 
change, or the font will be messed up (as inserting a new character 
changes the numbers in the font tables).

BTW. (Carl/Graham?), maybe above instructions fit into the programming 
concepts manual?
