Yes, but ...

... I don't want to have a manual solution – but thanks for the
suggestion.

What I imagine is a possibility to specify front matter' and
back matter' that gets processed but not displayed, for example

\relative c' {
\frontmatter { f4( }
g a b c
\backmatter { d) }
}

which should be handled as

\relative c' {
\partial 4 f4( \break
g a b c \break
d)
}

with the first and third line thrown away.

Something like that would be extremely helpful for chords with many
ties, like in piano music.
