Thanks for your replies.
I understand that what I want is, in LilyPond, impossible by regular means,
and/or unusual if realized by a weird trick, moving a note-head to the wrong
side of the stem. That would be rather ugly, I think.
Still, what I want to do is not my idea. To illustrate what I'm talking about I
will have to include two more screenshots from serious publications.
Different works from the same composer.
Does it look wrong or repulsive?
Would it really be impossible to realize it in LilyPond?
Btw, I just see another posible dirty trick to realize it.
