[Han-Wen, I'm resending this with slightly improved code and wording
to the lilypond-devel list since it seems that you don't have enough
time to answer.]

Ok, here's my next try.  Perhaps due to my lack of the deeper
knowledge of lilypond internals, I'm stuck now.

  . What must I do to guarantee that the vertical brackets are always
    positioned left of the accidentals?

  . The vertical positioning of the markup objects in the code below
    is done in a very clumsy way, as can be seen easily, but I wasn't
    able to find out how I can shift `ly:bracket' vertically.  It
    appears as if it is always centered relative to the note head it
    is attached to.

    I would like to do it better; however, it should be done *within*
    my `make-vbracket' function because I plan to improve the logic of
    the vertical positioning (depending on the note's pitches).

My code (ab)uses the `Fingering' interface -- I think that single
vertical brackets should become a new grob: Just think of vertical
brackets *plus* fingerings...



#(define-public (make-vbracket grob)
  (let* ((event (event-cause grob))
         (digit (ly:event-property event 'digit))
         (mag (magstep (ly:grob-property grob 'font-size)))
         (m (if (< digit 0)
              (markup #:override (cons 'baseline-skip (* mag 3))
                      #:column (#:null
                                #:stencil (ly:bracket Y (cons 0 (* mag (- 
                                                      (* mag 0.2) (* mag 0.4))))
              (markup #:override (cons 'baseline-skip (* mag 1))
                      #:column (#:stencil (ly:bracket Y (cons 0 (* mag digit))
                                                      (* mag 0.2) (* mag 0.4))

vbracket =
#(define-music-function (parser location interval) (number?)
  "Add a vertical bracket, using the given @var{interval} (which can be
  (apply make-music
           'origin location)
          (list 'digit interval))))
