    In general terms, I stand by my original opinion that both flat *and*
    modern-straight flags should behave like beams (but I might be missing
    something, of course...).

But the Stockhausen examples you show don't behave like *traditional* beams.  
The Stockhausen examples show the flags all coming from the stem at the same 
point relative to the staff lines.  Traditional beams vary where they are 
relative to the staff lines (lower ones rest, middle ones straddle, higher ones 
hang, IIRC).  Since the Stockhausen beams don't live on the staff, they don't 
have to be concerned about the staff lines, and I suspect they are just one 
staff-space apart, although I haven't measured carefully.

In the Crumb piece, we can't tell what's happening with the flat flags/beams; 
they aren't on the staff lines.  But I suspect that they are exactly one 
staff-space apart, so they don't behave like traditional beams either.

I think this discussion belongs on the -user list, not the bug list, as we're 
now talking about aesthetics, so I've copied it over there.
