I understand it may seem unusual to copy the stem direction according to the manuscript, but I'm not sure why you think it is ugly. It's for my personal use, and it worked beautifully for me.

If you mimick the stem lengths and directions of the manuscript in LilyPond, your engraving will still differ from Bach’s manuscript in many ways. It’s a totally different style of engraving, which follows different rules.
