I am the worst person in the world for advice on the most straightforward way 
to do something...I'll let others chime in on how to solve this problem.  You 
may want to note as well in the docs that if someone puts:

\markup { \italic { foo \emdash bar } }

Lilypond will think \emdash is a function.  They'd need to do: \markup { 
\italic { foo "\emdash" bar } }

This sounds like a good idea!
