*  left-aligning song lines on the lyrics, not the first note. This is
   possible using invisible barlines in the lyrics, it doesn't need extra
   commands in the music. I created already some demos showing this.
*  Kerning in lyric syllabes that are so close to each other that no hyphens
   are printed. There is sometimes still some space visible, which is not so
