That does sound nice.  There would need to be some helper functions to handle 
the formatting issue that Jean pointed out, but I can get that mostly to work.

Attached is a basic mock-up of this strategy.  The one hangup that I ran into 
is that \replace doesn’t work directly on lyrics, so I had to use the \paper 
version.  Beyond that, it seems to be working, but I’ll happily take any 
critiques on the coding style before I start working this into a final version.
