Hi Carl, thanks!

While we're talking beaming rules, I just wanted to ask you about the
rules for 3/4 time signatures (same file, line 90):

 ((3 . 4) .
   ((beamExceptions .
     ((end .
       (((1 . 8) . (6)) ;1/8 note whole measure
       ((1 . 12) . (3 3 3)))))))) ;Anything shorter by beat

My question is: what does the "12" refer to? Is it specifically the
value of a tuplet note? In which case, do the "3 3 3" imply that
triplets should be beamed three-by-three?
Or is the "12" just a random note between 8 (as in "8th note") and 16
(as in "16th note")? In which case, could it have been any number
below 16 (like, for example, 15)? But in this case, what do the "3"
stand for?

The reason why I'm getting confused is because I thought that any rule
for a given duration would also apply to shorter duration, as seems to
indicate your comment on line 48:

";;;    If an exception is specified for a given beam-type, it will apply to all
;;;     beams of shorter durations that don't have an individual exception"

Thanks for your lights!
