there is no native mechanism for this. i hacked it a while ago by making
two simultaneous beamed note-groups, with the beams tilted opposite
directions in each, and tweaked so the beam start-points were the same.
lily's spacing algorithm was sufficiently reliable that i didn't have to
worry about making one set of noteheads or stems disappear - they always
coincided exactly.

that was back on 2.0.0, so things may have changed since then.

if anyone else has a better solution, i'd love to hear it too!
