OK, I have prepared a proof-of-concept score (see attached) where we'll
be able to really test the multiple-segment slurs ;-)

As it is I'm once more astonished about how perfectly readable this
score is by default (the only manual "tweaks" are some forced \voiceXXX
in the sixtuplet voice).

I'll upload that to the openLilyLib directory where I'll integrate the
code, then start with one two-segment slur and take it as an incentive
to support multi-segment slurs and later even broken slurs.
