I don't understand what the code is supposed to do.  If I try your
example below, I get exactly the same output as the ps you send.  Do
miss something, or can you give a better example?

The code takles the Bug described in "It is not possible to specify beaming parameters that act differently in different parts of a measure. This means that it is not possible to use automatic beaming in irregular meters such as 5/8."

With the present auto-beaming, I can only specify the length of the first beam, all others have the same length (implemented via a modulo operation). Especially for odd length measures, I would like to be able to beam differently automatically,
   e.g in 5/8, [a8 b]  [c  d  e].
With the patch, the user can specify each position a beam should end, so for the above example, these are 2/8 and 5/8, \property Voice.autoBeamSettings \override #'(end * * 5 8) = #(make-moment 12 8)
(where 12 = 2*5 +2 specifies twice the position 2 to get a number >=5 )
but not 2/8 and 4/8 achieved  by using
\property Voice.autoBeamSettings \override #'(end * * 5 8) = #(make-moment 2 8)

I hope I have made the point clearer.
