I agree with Evan.  If there are no instructions given, Lily is free
to do whatever she wants, and we can expect her to solve the problem
automatically.  For example, if both voices were placed entirely on
the same staff, collision would be avoided:

\score {
  \new Staff = "up" <<
    \new Voice {
      f''8 e''8 e'' e''
    \new Voice {
      e'8 g'8 g' g'

However, i agree that in case of voices crossing staves, it might be
not possible to reliably decide how they should be laid out.
In other words, i don't expect this to be solved anytime soon.
