In a file of mine I have

    \alternative { { <c f>1~\> | <c f>4\! r a4.-\tweak #'to-barline  ##t
    ( b8) | }

Note that you have to apply the tweak right before _starting_ the slur
that is going to _end_ in the barline.

I think that repeat alternatives are doing far too little context
matching work currently.  Most should really be automatic.
