Look at \set in the index! This will direct you to 9.2.3. The VERY
FIRST EXAMPLE of \set involves changing a property at the Score level!
Of course, for expand-limit you probably want \override instead.

9.2.6 Changing context default settings ?!?!
Anthony, please read the manual. I've spent literally over *100 HOURS*
writing and updating manual since April. When people complain about the
lack of info in the docs, when that info is clearly *IN* the docs -- in
some cases, when that info has been in the docs for years -- I really
wonder why I bother.
I mean, if I stopped working on lilypond and worked at McDonalds serving
fries, I would have made over $800 in that time. That would cover two
months of rent.
