    Hi Kieren,
    
    without even looking at your example, to be honest, but a shot in the dark:
    
    Fo you still remember David's and Mike's "magnetic snapping lyrics"?

    This snippet eventually went into OpenLilyLib, and was apparently 
    rediscovered as non-working about a year ago by Urs, see

I've just been doing some choral engraving where lyric hyphens are eliminated 
where there is no space.  And I haven't used any special tools.  It may only 
work where \textWidthOn has added space to the notes.

Consider Christmastime in the following snippet.
