I've seen it in the solo partitas and sonatas for violin from Bach and
would assume that they are also to be found in the cello suites.

Both Bach and Mozart wrote this using more than one voice, even for non divisi 
violins. However, later centuries introduced the notation with different 
durations on one stem; this is commonly achieved in LilyPond by overriding 
duration-log on note-heads, not by actual duration.

Thanks for explaining that to me. I found those constructs in the Schirmer 221 
It's interesting to see that Bach himself uses some other kind of notation, 
compare e.g.
the start of the Ciaccona in d flat in his own manuscript and the Schirmer 

Back to my problem: I think I have to use some heuristics to determine the 
of stems and flags ...
