I'm doing it the way I mentioned, by locking the global size and scaling just
the staff.  My scaling the music slightly does not look drastic but does
eliminate page breaks.  I only re-scale as a last resort after I've adjusted
the between system padding as close as is comfortable and tried adding
another staff, etc.  The effect is so subtle, and since the heading size is
locked solid at #20 global the pages look consistent even though the staffs
on some are smaller slightly to get that song on a single page.
