So perhaps what you do is put this (along with the \chordGlissando) function
in a file ly/

And you define a music function \slide (perhaps including the call to
\glissando; perhaps not).

And then you do one of the following, depending on what works:

1) Put separate overrides for Voice.Glissando and TabVoice.Glissando

2) Put in a check for the type of context, and choose the correct override.

Then you put \include "" at the top of your snippet,
and it's good to go.
