The version that Chappell uses in the Mikado is attached.

It does break the usual rules about horizontal placement, and about when to cancel accidentals in another voice. But, with the beaming to clarify the timing and linking the voices, I did not notice any rules were broken --until I tried to produce it with Lilypond.

It would be reasonable to ask Lilypond to produce 'A' below on her own, and even better if she would offset the notes as in 'B' (which she does do for chords in one voice). Probably a human should decide when to bend the rules to produce 'C'.

I think it helps to show the desired behavior in the tracker, and plan to put what is below in a comment to 1134, unless somebody either beats me to it or has second thoughts.

\relative c' { \time 2/8

  << s1*0^A
    { fis8 g } \\ { f! f } >>
  << s1*0^B
    { fis8 g } \\
    { \once\override NoteColumn #'force-hshift = #1
      f! f } >>
  << s1*0^C
    #(set-accidental-style 'voice)
    { fis8[ g] } \\ {
      s64 f!8*7/8[ f] } >>

Good with me.  I've just added the Chappell example to the tracker.
