Comments: eg
php complex_autobeam.php 7/8=3,2,2 13/8=2,2,2,3,2,2 18/8=3,2,2,2,2,3,2,2
will group beamable notes that haven't yet been beamed into groups three eighth notes in length, followed by two groups two eighth notes in length, when the prevailing timesignature is 7/8. If the staff also has time signatures of 13/8 or 18/8, appropriate groupings will be made.

If a barline is coloured at all (eg grey), it is interpreted as a courtesy barline, and doesn't reset the counting.
