I agree.  Is it any worse than Old-odd-rhythm, which has 7/64 to the beam
on the "first" beat and 9/64 to the beam on the "second" beat?

My inclination would be to not worry about this change in the regtests --
it goes from one bad to a different bad.  Neither one is right.  Instead,
I'd fix the regtests so that they had sensible beaming, and demonstrate
that it worked properly with sensible beaming.
