    Thanks for the explanation, which makes sense. Where should I suggest that 
this be made more prominent in the documentation? It think it ought to be 
mentioned in the section on Lyrics where slurs are discussed so that both 
options are evident to people like me, who dip in and out of Lilypond on a 
semi-regular basis but aren’t quite up on all the details.

Well, in NR 2.1.1, under Multiple notes to one syllable 
 we read of five different ways to accomplish this.  One of them is manual 

"Notes are considered a melisma if they are manually beamed, providing 
automatic beaming is switched off. See Setting automatic beam behavior"

There is also a subsection that describes how melismaBusyProperties can be 
tuned to control how melismata are decided.

Perhaps this is a place that more clarity could be added, but personally, this 
has worked well for me understanding this issue.  I don't really see a need to 
add more here.

Maybe we need to improve the indexing.
