Unfortunately, there is in lyricsmode.  As opposed to non-quoted stuff
with a '.', ',' is not special.  I considered changing that, but while
would have allowed \blub foo , bar , buzz or even \blub foo ,bar ,buzz
it would
not have helped with the much more important \blub foo, bar, buzz so
it is sort
of pointless.  And we definitely do not want to split foo, into two
tokens in
lyricsmode.  So in lyricsmode, we'd more or less be stuck with
foo,bar,buzz .


So all-in-all, it is a bit of a so-so improvement.  Its main
motivation for me
really is not to have to use '.' for grouping numbers since it is
already used
inside of numbers.  And it does make tag lists look nicer.  And
lyricsmode is
not really overcrowded with music functions so this will likely not
become an
issue all too often.
