There is not specific builtin support in Lilypond, but you could
use ordinary text scripts to obtain what you want.

Try something like
d4_"x"_"x"_"x"_" "_"x"_"x"_"x"
g_"x"_"x"_"x"_" "_"o"_"o"_"o"

I tried this, but I couldn't get the symbols to show up in the
postscript.  But this maye have changed in later version of lilypond
(I used 1.6.9).  This way is also quite cumbersome...

What I was thinking one could do is something similar to the way tabs
are done.  I.e. something like say:

\score {
\context StaffGroup <
\context Staff <
\melody
>
\context TinWhistleStaff <
\melody
>
>
}

and get the desired output.  Any tips on where to implement this kind
of a hack would be nice.
