Nice, thanks.

I need this to make the staves use less vertical space so that more
staves can be added to a part page.  This means that a solution with
`extra-offset` is not helpful.  Additionally, walking over all
triplets is tedious; there are a lot of them...

However, Kieren's approach is nice: It takes the slant of the beam and
simply shifts it up.  In general I think this is what I want: Use the
original slant and shift the bracket up until it no longer collides
with the note heads (plus some padding).
