Greetings, and my apologies for having left this mail unanswered for so long,

I have added your suggestion to our tracker as

However, technically I should not have done so because you didn't
provide us with an example of such a notation. Can you please send an
image of what you're referring to?

You may also want to install the latest LilyPond version (if you're
using Windows, we do have a native version so using cygwin is not
required -- nor recommended). We recently have implemented new
features that allow to define new stem-flags much more easily.

Once again, we'd need to have small individual examples (png images
are much, much preferred compared to a flash website ;-)
