To just do something curvy, do something like:

zz = \markup\postscript "0 1 360 5 mul { cos 0.01 mul 0.002 add .01 exch
rlineto } for stroke"

\relative c'' {
  c4^\zz c c c |
  c c c c |

there is also a \markup\path command that possible could be useful 
since you want svg output.

Karl this looks outstanding but I don't understand how the code works. Is
there a manual page for curves postscript code? Can you tell how you arrived
at the code? I'm totally unable to see anything. 

0 1 360 5 mul { cos 0.01 mul 0.002 add .01 exch rlineto }

This page is very helpful, although it can be overwhelming if you're brand new to this sort of thing.
