Hi David (et al.),

These are questions regarding the "lyric-word-reconstituter" in the thread 
which includes the post 

I'd love to use it (or something like it) in my engravings going forward.

1. It doesn't seem to work with 2.19.61 (at least), and convert-ly doesn't seem 
to help. The error is

    warning: type check for `LyricWord' failed; value `#<Grob_properties>' must 
be of type `list'

My instinct (and a quick search on -user) led me to believe that changing

    (set-object-property! grob-name 'translation-type? list?)


    (set-object-property! grob-name 'translation-type? ly:grob-properties?)

might fix the problem. The file/example now compiles without error. Did I fix 
it correctly?

2. This is a workaround/hack/fix from 2014. At the time, there was some 
question as to whether Janek might roll this (or similar) into the GSoC Lyric 
project… but that is, I believe, dead in the water. Is there any hope of 
getting this into the codebase? I'm happy to take this "stub" (much more than a 
stub, of course!) and shepherd it through the dev process to the goal line — 
but I don't want to start down a track that will ultimately lead to frustration 
or nowhere at all.
