I am notating a piece of music that is in 11/8. I've been trying to figure out how I can get Lilypond to automatically group beams in a 3+3+2+3 pattern. I tried the override-auto-beam-setting command, but it didn't work, I'm assuming it's because there is no auto-beam setting in the first place for 11/8. I also tried \set beatGrouping = #' (3 3 2 3), also to no success. In both attempts, the compiler still parsed it, except in neither did it have any effect.
My Lilypond is version 2.10.25.
Can anybody help me?

This has been changed, it seems. In 2.13.7 I use for example:
  \time 12/16
  \overrideBeamSettings #'Score #'(12 . 16) #'end #'((* . (3 2 2 3 2)))
which in your case should be:
  \time 11/8
  \overrideBeamSettings #'Score #'(11 . 8) #'end #'((* . (3 3 2 3)))
