As a workaround, perhaps you can use a text spanner, this should align each 
pair of Ped and * vertically. See input/test/text-spanner.ly for ideas.

If you want all Ped and * markings to be on the same vertical position, then 
you can create them in a Lyrics context, like
\new PianoStaff << ... >>
\new Lyrics \lyricmode { \markup {...}2.. \markup {...}8 | ...  }
where the {...}s are substituted for something that creates Ped and * 

I don't know about the conventions for pedal markings. Do you have any 
examples of hand-engraved scores, that show clearly that all pedal markings 
below one system should be vertically aligned? (in this case, I'll add it to 
the bug database)
