I don't think so (but I could be wrong!), but you can fake it like this:

% this displays the two time signatures
\time 3/4 \partial 32 s32 \time 3/2

% this makes Lilypond stop counting time

c4 c c \bar "|"
d2 d d \bar "|"
c4 c c \bar "|"
d2 d d \bar "|"

You might need to change a few things, but I think that this will give
you approximately the output that you want.  Again, there might be an
easier way to do it, but this way _will_ work.  :)
