In this new bug report, I want to merge heads from voice 2 sometimes
with voice 1 and sometimes with voice 3.  This is an actual situation in
classical guitar music -- it's not infrequent to have a melody at the
top with stems up, a bass line at the bottom with stems down, and a
"filler" in between.  At any particular time, we only want to merge
heads from two voices, but there are two different possible

It seems to me that we can only merge notes between two voices, but we
should be able to accommodate more than two voices in the staff that has
merge-differently headed.

The bug example I sent would produce correct notation if the note head
of the last e were a half-note head.

So this may not be a bug, but a feature request.  But I don't believe
that it would create impossible notation.
