I was curious too, so i wrote it down.
Indeed it looks like he used non-default layout (by default Lily uses
3 systems), but i won't call it non-optimal. In my opinion fitting
this music in two systems is perfectly reasonable here (and maybe even
better than spreading over 3 systems), and Lily should be able to
execute this flawlessly.
Unfortunately, measure 6 still looks bad. It's not as spectacular as
in his pdf, but i won't said its acceptable at all. It's a shame
especially because this problem is something in which Finale (2008)
excels (see attachment).
Still, even not counting this, he undoubtedly proved - with some very
simple music - that LilyPond 2.10.33 failed to produce acceptable
output :(
