To beam or not to beam is a decision.  Beaming across rests requires a
rather dedicated decision.  The autobeamer caters rather for the cases
where the composer does _not_ make an explicit decision.

LilyPond has a number of possibilities to avoid repetitive entry
however.  You can, for example, use something like

<< \mymusic
   \repeat unfold 32 { s8[ s s s] }

to add explicit beams in parallel to some passage written in eights.  Of
course, this beam right across everything.

The documentation is quite explicit that automatic beams will not span
