It seems to me that this should be a feature request.

It also seems to me that we could make this quite easy to use as a default.

We currently have beatGrouping used to end beams and beatLength used to
subdivide beams.

If we want more control over ending beams, we use override-auto-beam-setting
to add beam endings for specific beam types (16th, 32ned, etc.)

We should be able to add a functionality for  override-beam-subdivision that
is beam type specific, just like we've done for beam endings.  Although it
may be somewhat hard to get just right, the documentation is in *much*
better shape than it used to be (thanks, Trevor), and we can use a
corresponding syntax so it must only be learned once.

Also, for the most common settings, beatGrouping and beatLength suffice; no
need for any of the overrides.
