Now that you mention it, I don't believe I have seen grace notes in other music; however bagpipe music is absolutely full of such notes. I think part of the reason is that bagpipe music is continuous, no rests, no breaks in notes, so gracings are used to seperated notes.

I have noticed from the bagpipe example file that this is very
common in bagpipe music, but I can hardly recall having seen grace
notes in the middle of a beam anywhere else, so I actually think that
LilyPond agrees with common typesetting practice.
However, I clearly see the problem in your application, so it might be
worth to introduce an additional option in LilyPond.

I hope I haven't missed this in the manual.

Auto beams don't seem to work when there are grace notes between the beamed notes.

Can this be modified so the notes are beamed?
