In Lilypond 2.13.x multi-note tremolos are supported natively:

\version "2.13.41"
\relative c' {
   \repeat "tremolo" 4 { e16 g c g }
   \repeat "tremolo" 4 { e16 a c a }
   \repeat "tremolo" 4 { f16 a c a }

I cannot find where say we support multinote tremelos. Can you check I am
not misunderstanding and perhaps I can add something to the Documentation.

I implemented it with commit 30d01cfe87eabe3c84471ac33f8d55e53b2c9240
(10.07.10 11:10). Apparently, I forgot to add an item to the changes file,
though. There is no longer a restriction of exactly two notes/chords in a
tremolo repeat. Any number of notes/chords now works (of course, only if their
cumulative duration can be expressed as a common note duration).

An example can be found in the input/regression/
regtest file: (scroll down

Thanks, that helps. I look at making an appropriate Notation Reference Document Patch.
