Actually, we can do this now.  The development version has default spacing that 
puts groups of staves closer together.  It looks maybe a bit too subtle to me, 
but pretty darn good.

The defaults are :
    between-staff-spacing . ((space . 9)(minimum-distance . 7)(padding . 1))
    after-last-staff-spacing . ((space . 10.5)(minimum-distance . 8)(padding . 
    default-next-staff-spacing . ((space . 9)(minimum-distance . 8)(padding .
