While writing my resume, I stumbled across what I was missing: the
nohead and nofoot command (trying to make it all fit onto one page).

When I use this:
\usepackage[margin=1cm,nohead,nofoot]{geometry}
my ly2dvi two-page score remains two pages when I use lilypond-book.
When I used only [margin=1cm], it was three pages.

My previous experience with LaTeX involved things like this:
\geometry{textwidth=296.900mm,textheight=210.000000mm}
\oddsidemargin=0in
\textheight=9in
\topmargin=0in
\voffset=0in
\topmargin=0in

That's why I thought that the margins were complicated to set.  The two
LaTeX guides I downloaded didn't mention the geometry package.  :)
