The place to put any docs is 
The first suggestion there is to adjust beam positions, with a link to the 
section on resolving collisions.  The second example moves a hairpin down, 
in a way that causes the staves to spread so that the moved hairpin doesn't
run into anything else.

I do see why you focused on hairpins, because that the most common colliding 
glyph where the collision is unwanted, and the specific problem in issue 36.

Bugs where we don't know the desired behavior are impossible to fix.
Maybe post the \override Beam #'rotation that the patch would enable, 
to give people some idea of our options.
