Automatic lengthening of Lyrics extenders

Michael Gerdau
Dear lilyponders,

[hit sent too early the first time around]
in vocal music especially multipart music lyrics extenders do greatly enhance readability how stuff is sung. Especially for long notes extenders come in handy - so far this is probably well established and not exactly new 😊

This all works reasonably good for tied and slurred music. However when there is a long note (e.g. full, or breve or such) the current situation leaves room for improvement (to my knowledge).

I'm looking for an automatic way to have the extenders in the upper system similar to those in the lower system as of the example below.

Any ideas?

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\version "2.21.0"

{
  <<
    \new Staff { c''1 c''2. c''2. c''1. }
    \addlyrics { bla __ bla __ bla __ bla __ }
    \new Staff {
      c''8( c'' c'' c'' c'' c'' c'' c'')
      c''8( c'' c'' c'' c'' c'')
      c''8( c'' c'' c'' c'' c'')
      c''8( c'' c'' c'' c'' c'' c'' c'' c'' c'' c'' c'')
    }
    \addlyrics { bla __ bla __ bla __ bla __ }
  >>
}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Kind regards,
Michael
