The very concept of beats within a cadenza goes against the
whole idea of a cadenza in the first place.  I think a
better system would be to break beams only when the note
duration changes, and *not* after a dotted note.  But
there's simply no algorithm that will work in most cases.
The user will almost always need to do some manual beams.

One possibility to ease some of the burden for the user
would be to set up "beaming styles", not unlike the
accidental styles that we currently have.  So we could have
\groupBeats and \groupDurations, for example.
