This is sheer coincidence - LilyPond always (!) extends the stems to the
middle stave-line.
As soon as there are more than two flags, they obscure the ledger lines.

Moreover, cue size note stems should not even extend to the middle
stave-line but be a stave-space shorter, even when extended. Gould does not
mention that explicitly, but one can see it in her examples.

I'm going to create an issue (and incidentally have already created a patch
some time a go that still needs some testing for beams and tremolos).

Here's the current status showing cue notes in the lower staff and already
using Malte's new mega-flags:


All the best,
