\time 4/4

\overrideBeamSettings #'Score #'(4 . 4) #'end #'(((1 . 8) . (2 2 2
2)))

This is a feasible beamSettings override, but it's probably not desirable.

The new autobeaming code requires that you set a *complete* set of beam rules for any time signature. This is not a complete set; it doesn't have default behavior (but if no default behavior is in the beaming rule, it will
default to grouping at beatLength).

You mean that a beam setting override must contain a (* . (...)) rule?
Even if a (* . (...)) rule exists in the default beamSettings?

I would have naively expected that a beam rule override would change
some particular beaming behavior, and that when it does not apply the rules
defined in beamSettings would be used.

That should appear clearly in the doc (but maybe I have missed it).
