Frankly, I decided against doing so since redefining parser behavior
resetting a global variable controlling its behavior in the middle of
a music
expression is a complete abomination.  This is different to how
\tupletSpan (or
its equivalent \override) works since \tupletSpan becomes a _part_ of
the music

I appreciate that reasoning, however the ability to set global behaviour
is one
of lilypond's major strengths - if overriding a default has to be
entered at every
usage of \afterGrace then we are back to making changes with sed

The default value of 3/4 is almost always not appropriate, and I
regularly set this globally after entering the music to find a suitable

Perhaps afterGraceFraction could be somehow included in graceSettings or
some other property of the Voice context?
