I submitted a patch to omit the hand-aligned notes from the left-aligning.

Another awkward problem is that 
is ignored when there is only one voice on the staff, because it is only
referenced in the code that resolves the meshing or merging of chords.

Making force-hshift apply to all NoteColumns is more likely to cause 
unforeseen problems, so I'm putting that off until a second step.

We will get by a little easier after the first step is in the code,
using the right force-hshifts on the staff with multiple voices
