Hi everybody!

I'm only 90% happy about "" and \markup\null...
For dynamic spanners and hairpins, we have \! to end them prematurely
before a "natural" end event appears.  Is this similar enough to warrant
the use of the same token (i.e., \! would be translated to empty lyrics
with a CompletizeExtenderEvent), and is it possible at all? Otherwise,
should we have a special token for this (\. comes to my mind)?

The use of "" and  \markup\null is nothing new, so it needs to be handled 
correctly anyway.
It's possible to move a \markup\null to the left or right, therefore it is 
useful for \earlyExtender.
If this property is not needed "" will be used as it is much easier to type. If 
\! or something similar
would be provided for the same purpose almost everybody probably still would use the 
faster "".

__ meant "add an extender event", this is meaningless with the proposed patch 
as an extender
event is added after every syllable. To increase compatibility I feel that it 
_never_ should be reused
for anything.
