No, absolutely not.  Hack up the .ly file.  Add some \breaks.
Pick different music.  Whatever.

(why the mao do we still have that headword, anyway?  Beethoven's
music is some of the rhythmically most boring stuff ever
invented.  That example inspires us to use beaming and grace
notes, which ignores the vast majority of Rhythms.  It doesn't
even have a bloody rehearsal mark!)
