I'll ask whether he has any hints on these, thanks for letting me know!

Actually, i'd vote for having Extenders added by default, without the
need to write them explicitly in ly code.
Sure, when i finish the issues already chosen for the project (i have
to do them first because that's what i've declared to uncle G), i'll
gladly work on Extenders.  In particular, i'd like to draw some
conclusions from "Lyircs melsima line ending in interpunctation"
thread and implement them.
