I noticed this too. This was one of the difficulties I had to solve in the
original function. (I hope I've done it)

I'm very curious how you solved this!

Many thanks to work on my test-function, but your suggestion doesn't work
with all possible beams.
Try:
\relative c' {
\stemUp
\override Beam #'stencil = #stencil-plus-bracket
f32 [f']
}

Yes, I realized soon after sending it that it only works when the beam is level.

Anyway, I will post my function once work is finished. I can see the end.

I'm looking forward to seeing it!

Best,
David
