That's useful info, but why is

? Why not go with a postfix \cresc? (thus "\cresc" = "\setTextCresc

IMO, the hairpin and the cresc - - - are two styles of conveying the
same information, so they should entered with in the same way (" \<
"). Style settings are property settings, which should occur before
the note is started.

Yes, they should be entered the same way -- that's my objection to
\cresc.  These lines produce the same thing:

  c'4 c'\< c'\! c'
  c'4 \cresc c' c'\! c'

but on the first line, you do \< after the note, while on the second line,
you do \cresc *before* the note.

From a programming standpoint, I don't think we should have any
  #(ly:export (make-event-chord (list cr)))
in ly/spanners-init.ly ; it messes up the postfix idea.  Just like we
changed slurs from "(a b)" to "a( b)", I think we should change
"\cresc a b\!" to "a\cresc b\!"
