But: I cannot imagine a situation where I would not use automatic
extenders, so I'm a really bad person to judge the need and requirements
for a manual mode.

One obvious and fairly common situation is when there are several
verses set beneath a melody line, but with different melismata.  In
this situation is is far easier to disable the automatic detection
of melismata and indicate them in the lyrics with "_".  That will
still work fine, AFAIUI, but equally the extender lines will differ
between the verses and will also need to be indicated manually.  Or
have I misunderstood something?

No need for manual indication. That's just a matter of adding the necessary _ for moments without a syllable on their own. Extenders are added automatically if and only if necessary.

I attach a recent example - very Christmassy!

Nice one, thanks.
Note that, due to the fixed voice association to soprano in the SATB template, you should manually left-align the syllables where the bass has 8.( 16). And I love the fact that lyrics assigned to a Staff instead of a Voice (news around 2.19.50) easily allow to align the { King. __ } and { mould. __ } to the left e' note of the alto instead of the shifted one in soprano...
Sorry, I meant to write { King. } and { mould. }, of course. ;-)

How would this be coded in future?
