  I did use the autochange command; Lily put the entire chord on either the
top or bottom staff.  What I want is some notes on one staff and some on
another.  Am I just doing something wrong in using autochange?  (I thought
it looked straightforward, and it works for single-note voices..)

  I've attached an example.  As far as I can see, autochange doesn't affect
the chords at all.
