a MusiXTeX extension for handling lyrics

musixlyr is a set of TeX macros to be used with Taupin MusiXTeX (version T.52 or later) for typesetting vocal music. Its purpose is to compensate two drawbacks of MusiXTeX's lyrics handling:

 * Typesetting lyrics with the "native" musixtex commands \zcharnote,
   \zsong etc. tends to be quite inefficient, particularly if the lyrics
   have to be changed or corrected.  The idea underlying musixlyr is to
   separate lyrics coding from music coding and let TeX weave them
   together with as little manual interference as possible.  As a result
   you can enter and edit lyrics (nearly) as easily as normal text.

 * musixtex has no built-in mechanism for centering hyphens between
   syllables and for handling hyphenation at long melismas.  This is
   implemented in musixlyr following the example of engraved music.
