Thanks, this sort of works.  The marks have to move a slightly
different distance depending on what they're above, so it isn't
perfect, but it's definitely better than having them smack in between
the notes.  For the record, the numbers I used are:

\property Score.RehearsalMark \set #'extra-offset = #'( -3 . 0 )

For the way I have my unbarred parts set up, 

        \bar ""

doesn't seem to be necessary.

There is a problem when the rehearsal mark is at a linebreak, because
lilypond is trying to put it on the next line, so the extra-offset
just moves it into the left margin of the line after the note it
should be attached to.  (see the cantus part letter H in

for an example.)  I can work around this by inserting \noBreak after
the mark.  But I think for my purposes it's probably long-term better to
go back to the marks over the notes, since it's a mark that goes with
a note that I want.
