Hi Trevor, Han-Wen,

thanks a lot for your efforts to help me out and thanks a lot for your
ideas and thoughts! Sorry if I sounded desperate. Trevor's post seems
to indicate that it might not work out to get everything perfectly
aligned (although I was very close for the first three lines before
the spacing engine freaked out).  I can live with that at the moment
if I can get it "roughly" correct by aligning the barlines of the
graph and the music at every tempo change for example. The musicians
will have a rehearsal CD anyway to relate their playing to the tape.

If I got it right, I should skip the whole idea of changing the value
of the proportionalNoteDuration during the piece.

My questions:

1. How do I change the spacing-increment in mid-music?

I tried \override Score.SpacingSpanner #'space-increment = #2.8

but this seems to set the spacing increment once and for all. Changing
Staff.SpacingSpanner didn't seem to change anything.

If that is impossible the minimum I could get away with would be to
set ragged-right to ##f and set the width of each staff system to
align with the graph. But as far as I understood, the page-width can
only get globally set in the \page layout block. Is there a way?

Great idea! I'm in of course, thanks for the offer!
