    I would hope beg love for someone to write a function that simply put spaced

    for years now. Hack yes but doable every time it works. What's LilyPond work
    around for this? Assume you want to engrave correctly and have your feather
    beams spaced out as they slow or speeden up, how can you do it? manually
    tweak space between notes it seems? Yikes :))

You could do exactly the hack that you shared with us  from Sibelius.  Put the 
triplets in your source, but tweak the heads, stems, and beams of the first two 
notes in the triplet to be hidden (probably by setting the stencil to ##f)
    Do you think it's even possible to write a function to automatically space
    according to the feather beam length and duration?
If you want to give up the beautiful optical spacing that LilyPond provides, I 
believe that featherDurations will work exactly the way you want it by using 
Proportional Notation 

You might be able to keep both the standard spacing and the proportional 
spacing by using \newSpacingSection

Try some examples, and if they don’t work the way you want them to, share them 
on the list along with the problems you are having.  That's a much better way 
to get help.
