Ok Graham. I've been trying for 20 minutes and can't figure how to use PaperColumn to change spacing, though. Joe, could you send me a snippet that shows how to use this?

I did find what appears to be a typo at the end of NR 6.8 "Difficult Tweaks":

"Note, however, that \override, applied to NoteMusicalPaperColumn and PaperColumn, still works as expected within \context blocks."

Should this read "NonMusicalPaperColumn" instead of "NoteMusicalPaperColumn"? I don't see the latter in the list of all graphical objects. If this is the case then I'll make a patch to fix the typo and send it to Carl.

"use PaperColumns instead of SeparationItems".

It was part of a massive set of changes to the
spacing engine by Joe.

As you say, it looks like a doc change is needed.

What happened to the SeparationItem #'padding property? The following setting used to give a large gap in version 2.10, but has no impact at all in 2.12.

\relative c'{c d e \once \override Score.SeparationItem #'padding = #30 f }

If there's a good reason that it doesn't work anymore, the corresponding
description in "Known issues and warnings" of http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.12/Documentation/user/lilypond/Horizontal-spacing-overview#Horizontal-spacing-overview
should be corrected.
