Thanks for your suggestions Neil!

I'm holding off on pushing the patch because I have noticed a spacing 
discrepancy in a few regtests.  See the attached, where "old" is current master 
and "new" is with my patch.  The spacing between the last 16th note and the 
quarter is too tight.

I have verified via pacifier prints that the pure heights of the flag are being 
taken from the stencil function and are going into the spacing engine in  However, in theory, this patch should have null effect on 
the minimum and ideal distances of paper columns.  This is not the case (see 

Happily (bizarrely), if I add the flag to the NoteColumn's elements grob-array 
in the rhythmic-column engraver, this problem goes away in the opposite sense: 
the paper column's minimum and ideal distances become wider (see attached).  
I'm tending towards doing this, but it also seems subpar (unless someone can 
vouch that the previous spacing somehow mishandled flags).

If anyone has any intuition as to why this is happening, I'd be much obliged if 
you'd share it with me.
