Subdivide as beamExceptions?

Hi Carl!

First of all thank you for your formidable work on the new autobeaming,
it seems really powerful and the ideas to configure it more "logical"
(although I must confess, I'm still not totally used to all these

I would just like to know if it is currently possible to define rules
for subdivided beams?  I think I heard about this in a discussion but I
was not able to find it again.

What I would like to do is (or seems, at least from a user point of
view) quite easy.
I'm really satisfied with current 4/4 beaming rules but I'd like to
add one more "default" rule: I want 32th to be subdivided by 8th.
So the equivalent of

  % Set beam sub-group length to an eighth note
  \set subdivideBeams = ##t
  \set baseMoment = #(ly:make-moment 1 8)
  \set beatStructure = #'(2 2 2 2)
  c32[ c c c c c c c]

but "automatically", as default rule (i.e. within beamExceptions?).

Because I do not want 16th (and longer notes) to be also subdivided by
8th, which is the case if I use the code above.

I have seen in "scm/time-signature-settings.scm" the line:

  (subdivide . grouping-rules)  (not yet implemented, reserved for future use)

Is this what I'm looking for?  And does this mean it is not implemented
yet, but will be possible in a not-so-long-term future?  ;-)
