Yes, in 2.2, the strings were rendered as... blank space!
Now they print out, but I can't figure out how to change their look. [There is a
section in the manual about font for numbers but no actual example.]

I would use it in the meantime [will the line be supported any time soon?], but
I was wondering whether that "ugly" trick could be confined to the "figured 
section of the code. I.e. I've defined a variable:

 figuresLowerLH = \figuremode {
     <4>2 <3>4 |
     <9 _+>4 <8>2 |
     <7 _+>4 s <6 5> |
 % etc.

How to add the markup within that section?

Would it be extremely difficult to modify the LilyPond code to make it so
that a blank space, if alone, doesn't actually take horizontal space?
