Re: merging the shaped note "fa"

I recently installed  the version 2.7.26-1 and noticed that some changes were 
done on the way to handle the "fas" in usison.
Unfortunately it wasn't fixed properly. Instead of shifting the notes to avoid 
collision, they should be merged in such a way that only one of the "fa" 
noteheads would be displayed, like a single note with double stems.
So the solution lies in making one of the noteheads transparent, which can be 
done manually overriding such property.
The real problem is in the span of the stem along the side of the fa notehead. 
It needs to be long enough to go from one corner to the other of the fa.
I know the development team had to do some successful adaptations with the case 
of the do, and I figure this other adaptation won't be too hard.
