Amazing! Thanks for the assist.

I’ll look through the code and see what I can figure out.

Agreed — I’ll work on that.

That’s my intuition as well.

I tested with ~ and _~ and a few other things, and it Does The Right Thing™, 
which is encouraging. If \markup \score *does* get replaced with something, I 
certainly hope that new something doesn’t significantly restrict the input

Not offended at all — quite the opposite! And I would be honoured to have this 
feature carry my name, with the one exception that I have Big Plans™ for future 
contributions, and wouldn’t want to blow my naming rights on this “outlier 
application” [ as someone called it ;) ].

Onward and upward!
