Hello Martin,

here my workround for this:

graceSchleifer =
#(define-music-function (parser location note) (ly:music?)
  (make-music 'SequentialMusic
   'elements (list #{
              \once \override Voice.NoteHead #'stencil = #ly:text-interface::print
              \once \override Voice.NoteHead #'X-extent = #'(-2 . -0)
              \once \override Voice.NoteHead #'text =
              #(markup #:large #:halign .2 #:raise 0.0 #:combine #:halign .8 #:musicglyph "scripts.prall"  
              #:rotate 140 #:normalsize #:raise 2.4 #:musicglyph "flags.u3")
              \once \override Stem #'stencil = ##f
     \once \override Flag #'stencil = ##f #}

usage: \grace{\graceSchleifer c16} e --> c16 indicates the pitch of the prall.

The Harvard Concise discusses it in the article on double appoggiatura, essentially a variation of two merged appoggiaturas a third apart. The symbol itself is called a direct, custos in Latin, in early manuscripts used at the end of staff to warn about the next note.

Wow! Thank you!! This looks great!!!

With your \graceSchleifer:
