Hi Hayim!

If one has a way to express alignment to a tabstop, you'd be good to
go, I think:
      <l>Hemistich 1A<caesura rend="alignat(40%)"/>Hemistich 1B</l>
      <l>Hemistich 2A<caesura rend="alignat(40%)"/>Hemistich 2B</l>                                    <l>Hemistich 3A<caesura rend="alignat(40%)"/>Hemistich 3B</l>

This describes what is going on quite well, I'd say. But note that
it's not necessarily all that easy to get output that looks like what
you're describing.
