        Ok, my understanding (from previous arguments, not the code :) ) of
the current decision process in lily about choosing stems/heads is that it
defaults to heads, unless there is a reason to choose stems (which seems to
occur with notes with flags, for example), in which case it decides
individually about each end.  It would be nice if it said "One end has to use
the stem, so they both should".

        Does that explain what I want better?
