Comment #2 on issue 2361 by tdanielsmusic: Beams with multiple subdivisions

I don't think we need any input syntax to do this. LilyPond should just do the correct subdivision if subdivideBeams is set. In "Behind Bars", on pages 156-157, Elaine Gould makes it quite explicit that using a single beam to separate groups of four 64th notes is wrong. She says, "the number of beams separating the groups [should be] equal to the duration of the groups they separate". A group of four 64th notes equals a 16th, so two such groups should be separated by a 16th beam, i.e. two beams. Four such groups should have two beams between first and second and between third and fourth groups, and a single beam between second and third. She gives an example showing exactly this. The example shown above follows exactly this rule, but in this case using groups of two 32nds.
