I cross-post this question to bug-lilypond, since this ends up in
a bug or feature request or at least a request for clearer

I took a quick look at the implementation and it does not provide
any support for what you want to do, namely to specify the orientation
separately for each note of a fingered cord. Rather, it has some ad-hoc
procedure to divide the fingerings evenly above and below the stave if
you specify both up and down in the list, just as you have noticed.

However, as Graham pointed out, you can specify the orientation of each
fingering directly at the note using ^ (for up) or _ (for down) instead
of - before the fingering, just as you can do with articulations or
textual indications.

However, this reveals another bug/limitation, namely that

\version "2.4.0"
\relative c'{<fis_1 a^1 cis^2 e^3 gis^4>}

sorts the fingerings above the stave, so they appear in the reverse
order compared to the notes.

                   4                      3
                   3                      2
                   2                      1
That would yield   [chord], but I want  [chord].
                   1                      1

Why does the fingering engraver not obey the explicit list of
positions? Does it try to distribute the numbers evenly?
