Do you really mean that you've used, say,

 a b[] c

within your score?  Currently, this is an undocumented feature, so you
are use something from the darker corners of lilypond...

Darker corners, indeed.


The two snippets attached here come from the commission I just finished up in February ...

In general I'm using the two-sided nibs or stubs to indicate a lone note (ie, preceded and followed by a rest) sitting within a governing beam. (100% of the beaming in my scores like this is manual.)

Maybe a quick mention of c[ ] in the manual could alert other modern(ist) composers of the availability of the feature?
