The proposed _ly-syntax_ is
\parenthesize <whatever>
\parenthesize #'left <whatever>
\parenthesize #'right <whatever>
No parens.

Obviously this is not default LilyPond, thus I proposed a _function_
which offers it.
This function is written in guile, the scheme-dialect used by LilyPond
as it's extension-language. Btw, it's the official GNU extension
For _usage_ such snippets are usually stored away somewhere and
included in you actual file.

Ofcourse noone will hinder you to dive into the code of the function
or the source-code in general, but you don't need to if you simply
want to use it.
