OK, thanks for your explanations.  Clearly the patch is an improvement for this
use case:

Another common use case occurs when the lyrics in several verses have
melismata in different places.  This is usually indicated with dashed slurs,
occasionally even with two such slurs starting on the same note.  When
there are many of these the easiest way is simply to turn off auto-melismata
with   \set melismaBusyProperties = #'() and indicate them with __ and _
manually in the lyrics.  Presumably this behaviour will not change with your
proposed patch?
