Hi Kieren,

I expressed my doubts it will ever work.

I don't have a clue how to deal with those issues, but I'd love to be
proofed wrong.

Any idea how to tackle:

(1) ligatures
\lyricmode { f -- i }

(2) short syllables, both with chords

  \new ChordNames \chordmode { c:7 g:13 }
  \new Lyrics \lyricmode { I -- o }
