Try what I've stuck up there.  BTW, there's only a few places where it might
possibly work; it isn't too much trouble to check all five or so places.

It certainly is possible; it just depends on how you defined everything and
structured your score block.

You mean like a ly orchestral score, written in concert pitch, but then 
the clarinet part into B\fetachar\fetaflat?  Very easily.  Mutopia should have a
few examples of this, and I've used it myself.
