That would involve some seriously weird tricks or some C++ hacking ;
the easiest would be to write some kind of note_head_engraver like
thing that produces thick line spanners during some time. You can look
at multi-measure-rest-engraver for inspiration.

try RhythmicStaff.VoltaBracket = \turnOff

make sure that both are in the same StaffGroup

You'd have to to ask Tom Cato <address@hidden> (I believe he worked on
the accordion notation).
