There is no way to "encourage the developers to fix this".  The
developers are all volunteers, and work on what they find interesting.

If you really want this worked on, here are a few ideas:

1) Ask if there are any developers who are willing to do it as work
for hire.  And then either pay the developer or try to get together a
group of users to collectively pay the developer.

2) Learn about LilyPond development and provide your own patch.  This
is one of the benefits of open source projects.  You can "scratch your
own itch".

3) Try to find somebody else who might make the change, either out of
interest or for money.  For example, you might find a computer science
student at a local school who is interested in music.

Repeatedly asking for this functionality to be provided on the devel
list is not likely to get anything done, and in fact may turn off some

I'm trying not to be mean in this answer, but to explain the way
LilyPond development works.  There is nobody who controls what is to
be worked on next -- every developer chooses for themselves what they
will do.
