Looks that i seriously failed to explain myself.
The small png was a real-life example of a triplet spacing problem
i've encountered.  It was a screenshot from a score i'm working on.
I've figured out that when i use uniform-stretching, the problem with
bad triplets goes away, but there are some side-effects.  I had to
post some example code to demonstrate these side-effects - this was
the code in my message, and the output of this code was attached as
pdf.  The example was atrificial and contrived, but it demostrated the
problem: setting uniform-stretching to ##t results in too much space
after the barlines.

Sorry, but i don't understand what you mean at all.
Since my example was artificial, changing anything can break it
(meaning that the example will no longer demonstrate the problem).
Your code doesn't solve the problem, it is simply not affected by the

A simplified snippet below.  I also think this may qualify as a bug,
so i'm cross-posting to bugreports.


\version "2.15.36"

\markup "uniform-stretching results in too much space after barline"
\score {
 \repeat unfold 16 gis'8
 \layout {
   ragged-right = ##f
   \override Score.SpacingSpanner #'uniform-stretching = ##t

\markup "compile this to see how the output should look like:"
\score {
 \repeat unfold 16 gis'8
 \layout {
   ragged-right = ##f
