Staff group bracket ends not merged

Given the following:

\new StaffGroup
\new Staff { R1 R1 R1 }
\new InnerStaffGroup
\new Staff { R1 R1 R1 }
\new Staff { R1 R1 R1 }

Both staff grouping brackets end at the same point. In traditionally engraved scores (e.g. Dover's publication of Scheherazade), these ends are merged, or at least the inner ends are hidden. It looks even more noticeable with 3 levels (the latter score has exactly this on, say, pg 12, V.Cello).

Speaking of which, how do you have more than 3 levels of staff bracketing? It seems to get three you need to use StaffGroup/ChoirStaff/InnerStaffGroup, but after that you're on your own. If I wanted, say, the whole score with one bracket, the string section with another bracket, then violin I & II bracketed, and then violin I solo and violin I (rest) bracketed, it doesn't seem obvious how to do this.
