How do you produce accompaniment slashes such as the ones below, in

There are trade-offs involved which I won't be able to cover in this
email (in a rush - sorry) but attached is what occurred to me, using

Command: Insert Percent Style Repeat
Creates a repeat from the selection, typeset in \"percent\" style.
Location: Object Menu ▶ Notes/Rests ▶ Note Insertion
Internal Name: PercentRepeat


I'm not even sure what the official term for that is. I saw
something under Notes/Rests -> Notehead Types -> Choose noteheads ->
Slash, but that puts a slash on a quarter stem, which is not the same
as above.

That would work too, there is a command to make the stem transparent
(at least there's a bit of LilyPond syntax, I've an idea it may be in
Denemo already).

I'm guessing that in addition to making the stem transparent one would also need to reposition the stem. I looked closer at the lilypond code for the snippet i quoted initially - it defines a context, within the \layout { } section.  Is there a way to insert the snippet, using denemo? 

\context {
  \name ImproVoice
  \type "Engraver_group"
  \consists "Note_heads_engraver"
  \consists "Text_engraver"
  \consists "Rhythmic_column_engraver"
  \consists "Pitch_squash_engraver"
  squashedPosition = #0
  \override NoteHead.style = #'slash
  \hide Stem
  \alias Voice

and also:

\context {
  \accepts ImproVoice

Then one could insert the opening and closing lilypond anywhere in denemo staff, to implement "ImproVoice":

"\new ImproVoice {" (to open)

"}" (to close)

(I implemented opening and closing lilypond ottava commands similar to the above)

As my weird aside: I still can't post to lilypond-user, even though
i'm subscribed to it. It seems i am blocked. Maybe someone here
could be graciohttps://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-userus
and pot a message to someone there (a moderator?
If you go to https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user
you get to contact the list admin (via this I think)

Already emailed the admin.  Same bizarre silence, no-reply.
