LilyPond can be inserted with lyrics - starting with backslash until the end of line - precanned examples are in lyrics menu (e.g. stanza numbers).

We could define a value of the override flag to mean that the prefix and postfix fields go into the lyric stream. I am not sure it would be easy to create that output, and it would not be easy for the user to manipulate the lyric syllable's appearance by creating a directive on the note the syllable attaches to.

I think we should allow the insertion of lilypond into lyrics and teach Denemo's lyric display mechanism to skip over it.
This could be hard depending on how easy it is to detect - so question: what is the sort of LilyPond lyric text that we would wish Denemo to handle, ie examples, please of lyrics with change of font, markup ....

We need Lyric directives. These are rather simple from a Lilypond perspective because these directives would go directly into the lyrics text. The purpose is to not confuse Denemos lyric placement.

1) Prefix is before the actual lyric text
2) Postfix is after the actual lyric text.

This is useful for overriding font sizes, entering markups etc.
