One of the problems is that the number of cases that may occur is
virtually endless. I could add a case for "no collision between
heads, but intermeshed heads", though.

I myself would probably shift the note by a much smaller amount (just
enough to separate the stem and head), but Wanske shows that there are
many solutions, especially if the meshed chord must be synchronised
with a note in an other staff. For example, sometimes, the horizontal
ordering of the chords is reversed.
