The default spacing between staves was reduced for version 2.14, to 9 staff-
spaces from the center of one staff to the next. 

The method to increase it is a little awkward:
  \new PianoStaff \with {
    \override StaffGrouper 
      #'staff-staff-spacing #'basic-distance = #10.5
  } <<

Is 9 spaces too close to have as the default?  I studied several piano scores 
before choosing 9, knowing that they staves spread as required for (most) 

Lilypond *will* spread the staves if the notes would otherwise force a more 
extreme beam (for example if you write do in place of mi).  Maybe her maximum 
tolerance for high slopes is a little too tolerant?
