the docs talk about such a command for custos stem direction/position:

neutral-direction (direction)
  Which direction to take in the center of the staff.
neutral-position (number)
  Position (in half staff spaces) where to flip the direction of custos

but I don't know how and whether this can be applied to "normal" stems.

like Janek I wouldn't rate this as bug but rather a feature request (with
low priority I assume)
if you want I can add it to the tracker.
