I have never liked this example in the documentation.

Firstly, it seems to mix Portuguese and Spanish.

Secondly, it does not follow the policy for syllable separator, which
is '[space]--[space]', not '-[space]'.

Finally, 2nd and 3rd stanzas look _very_ improbable to me in that it
has three syllables on a single note, which requires two lyric ties.
o~y is a synalepha and it could be a in-word diphthong, y~ho is
another synalepha, but o~y~ho is not a triphthong and can not be a
three-vowel synalepha.

If nobody finds a real example in literature, I suggest to remove the
problematic case, it is too artificial.
