still lyrics

More bugs/problems with lyrics:

  . Why can I say e.g.

      \property Voice.TextScript \set #'font-shape = #'italic

    and why can't I say

      \property Lyrics.LyricText \override #'alignment = #0

    but have to use `Lyrics . LyricText' (note the spaces before and
    after the dot)?

    This is *very* counter-intuitive for the user.

  . How can I move the lyrics line nearer to the voice staff?  I
    checked the documentation (which is, hmm, difficult to understand
    if someone wants to modify certain properties), but I couldn't
    found a hint.

  . Using the `alignment' property causes the following warning

      programming error: No StaffSpacing wishes found
                         (Continuing; cross thumbs)

  . Playing with the `alignment' property, I expect that text is
    always centered below the corresponding notes for value 0.  But it
    isn't in all cases!  Why not?  This looks like a bug.  See
    attached image.



      sopran = \notes \relative c'' {
        \property Voice.autoBeaming = ##f

        \clef treble
        \time 2/4
        r8 f!4 e8 |
        [e8 f] d4 |

      text = \lyrics {
        \property Lyrics . LyricText \override #'alignment = #0

        ein Selb -- an -- der,

      Text = \context Lyrics {

      Sopran = \context Voice \notes {

      \score {

        \paper {
          linewidth = 100.0\mm
