How can a user, who wants to use e.g. the measure counter engraver,
change the partCombineListener' s Global context without messing with
the original lilypond sources? Am I missing something?
The whole point of scheme engravers and scheme text spanners is that
users can now also implement things in scheme without messing with the
lilypond sources...
If I understand you right, then the user cannot add new grobs in an
include file without messing with the lilypond sources.

Would a proper solution be to change the partCombineListener to a
context mod and construct the real listener when we need it (i.e.
replace the current (ly:parser-lookup parser 'partCombineListener) by
the actual creation of the listener from the context in effect when
add-quotable or recording-group-emulate is called?
However, I don't really have enough knowledge about how to create the
actual listener in scheme and insert a given context mod in scheme...
