\tuplets 2/3 {c8 d e f e d e f g f e d }

We could also make \tuplet and \tuplets differ on the iterator level, so that
the tupletSpannerDuration property affects \tuplets expressions but not
\tuplet expressions.

BTW, in this case it may be good to register the fraction as its own argument
type, so \tuplets and \tuplet are generic music functions, both with
signature
(tuplet-fraction? music?)
