Agreed.

I’ve just discovered that using lyric-word-compressor makes the last line of my score unexpectedly (and unpredictably) shorter, as if I had set ragged-last = ##t. I'll see if I can make an MWE that demonstrates this issue; in the meantime, I'll have to crank out this score without it…

Thanks,
Kieren.

No, just parceling out the chunks to various .scm files.  Not hard at all.

I’ve just discovered that using lyric-word-compressor makes the last line
of my score unexpectedly (and unpredictably) shorter, as if I had set
ragged-last = ##t. I'll see if I can make an MWE that demonstrates this
issue; in the meantime, I'll have to crank out this score without it…
