I tried that, but since the problem is with enharmonic notes, they will
always get in each other's way, and the invisible notehead will shift
the real one aside so that the tie misses its target. So what I really
need is be either of

 - a way to typeset invisible notes that don't take up space

 - a method to force a tie to be drawn between two arbitrary
   noteheads, no questions asked.
