connecting lines (spanners?) between arbitrary grobs/locations
Inspired by a thread on the -user list, and my own recent struggles with the issue, I'm wondering about the technical possibilities of connecting arbitrary grobs on a system or page.
I've attached a screenshot of a Schenker graph (one of 22 I was hired to code for a music theory journal) in which I needed to have arrows connecting two notes (or at least pointing from one towards the other). One example was within a single staff, another was between two staves. In order to do this quickly, I resorted to trial-and-error markups — but I would have loved a mechanism by which I could identify the two "end-grobs", and then have the line/arrow/bracket/whatever drawn automagically.
I know we have spanner-id to connect multiple/nested spanners (e.g., slurs) in a single context.
Can the same concept be used between contexts?

Crop/reduce/compress/post a link to external online storage… ? I’d
assume it’s only a file size issue.
