Carl Sorensen worked on this stuff back in 2012, and implemented
  \set beatStructure = #'(4 3 4)
Before one had to write something like
  \set beatGrouping = #'(4 3 4)
  #(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 11 16) 4 16)
  #(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 11 16) 7 16)

The new beatStructure is simpler, but it fails capturing the hierarchy of 

So this is the question one ends up with when trying to implement automated 
forms of compound meter time signatures.
