I'm thinking about it, but no timeline.

Basically, it requires reworking the mechanism used in quote/partcombine
to yield a more versatile intermediate sort-of stream representation.
Merging/combining several such streams would then make it possible to do
stuff like retransposing.  All quite handwavy/iffy so far, but at least
it has the potential to sanitize the partcombiner greatly and make it
more powerful.

Would be also a good step forwards towards MusicXML export in
time-linear order (probably not sensibly reconvertible into LilyPond,
