I'm working with Lilypond v. 2.11.62 and I just can't figure out how
to get extra vertical space between staves.

My advise is to upgrade your version (you are running an old
development version).
Latest development version (2.13) has greatly improved the vertical
spacing and has a special setting parameter for this particular case.
Then you can change this spacing via

\paper {
  score-system-spacing = #'((space . 14) (minimum-distance . 8) (padding . 1))

Thanks, Xavier. I just downloaded the wrong version (!) --- ver. 2.12 --- but will have time later to obtain 2.13.

Now, I'm using this within a lilypond environment of a XeLaTeX doc. Will your proposed solution still work if I've got papersize determined via the \documentclass option?
