The second set of control points in \shape has to do double duty
depending on whether it is at the end of the slur or at a line break.
Perhaps more useful would be \shape taking the first point of the
first group and the last point of the last group if the slur is not

<wishfulthinking>Even better would be the ability to apply a totally
different set of points depending on the line breaking. This would be
trickier as a slur spanning three bars could potentially break in two

quite complicated.
