If theoretical correctness (or, say, accuracy to a previous source) isn't a requirement, then I agree with Charlie: this is a moment in which, as a keyboard player, I'd much rather see two different notes [by pitch name]. Otherwise, I'd say the split-stem convention is [perhaps counterintuitively?!] more readable for me. If you want to do this in Lilypond, I'm pretty sure Harm has solved this particular issue (see e.g., https://archiv.lilypondforum.de/index.php/topic,1176.msg6932.html#msg6932). Cheers, Kieren.
