I'm beginning to wonder whether this is a
desirable objective, after all.  There is
already a large set of pre-defs which by their
nature must be placed before the notes which
they affect - all the \twiddleOn \twiddleOff
pre-defs for example.  Then all the commands
are pre-fix operators - \new, \relative, \clef,
etc.  We can't change any of these.  \tweak
and \override are pre-fix.

Now we see a great advantage in writing music
functions - they're easy to write and can be made
to work inside and outside chords.  But they
have to be pre-fix from their nature.  Is that
