It wouldn't even be difficult to write a music function that adds a line
stencil to every Longa note head such as to mimick a longer stem. You
could ask for that on the user list.
How about the other note head styles?

a breve because of Lilypond's longa looks so bad with its short stem.
In Renaissance music (i.e. everywhere where this kind of note-head is
used as longa) the stem of the longa is as long as all the other
stems. So this short stem is clearly wrong. But I since I can't force
you to draw a proper longa, I must resign that I cannot use longa in
transcriptions of Renaissance music in the future, either, since
apparently you do not care. (And I think it's also useless to remind
you that other engraving programs - notably Finale - have a proper
longa, which I therefore used as a Finale user before switching to
