I figured out why it works - I figured I'd post this to the list in case anyone 
else ever wants to mess around with pure properties.

The StemTremolo is added to the paper column's element grob array via the 
axis-group-engraver because it does not have an axis-group-parent-Y.
Then, when horizontal spacing happens, its pure height function is passed 
through for its print function (

I may write a "pure" tutorial for the contributor's guide.  It has taken me a 
long time to figure out how "pure" works in lilypond, and if other people are 
as mystified as I was when I started trying to figure this stuff out, then I 
think an addition to the CG would help.
