Keith, thanks for the pointers, and a nice solution using stemNeutral.

Shouldn't the rests by default be placed where the voice goes in the
column - odds up, evens down - regardless of stem-direction?

The call to 'get_grob_direction isn't used in the notes+rest case inside, and i guess thats why Rest 'direction doesn't apply
there.  Do you think it could be plunged in while running through the
rests to give priority for any explicit directions vs. rests?

Indeed.  Apart from the placement of rests leaving the defaults in place
gives very good results.

I hadn't noticed this clause about un-pitched rests in stemNeutral
voices.  Is their behaviour vs. 'neutral-direction documented anywhere?

Thanks alot.
