For any vertical spacing problem, please use 2.12 instead; Joe Neeman
has been responsible of a rework of vertical spacing, but he is too
much occupied these days, we all are.  See below

Joe: is this already documented? Hot to control spacing from a lyrics
line and the staff below it?  Simple lyrics seem to almost collide.

<< \new Staff { a } \addlyrics { pain }
\new Staff { f' }


Joe: I hate to bug you again, but several users are asking vertical
spacing to have usable defaults and a documentation.  Just give us a
hint about when do you think this feature will be finished. Thank you!
In the meantime I recommend users to stay on 2.12
