It'd be great to have a command line option that specifies the
number of measures (or eighth notes or whatever) to typeset at
the end of a piece.  This way, skipTypesetting can be called from the
command line or set as an option in a header file.  It'd speed up
workflow a lot.
But it should have an option to set start and end of typesetting (so it doesn't have to be the _last_ pieces of music). Maybe an optional parameter: If there is one param LilyPond typesets the end of the music, if there are two params they are read as start and end position?

I often use spacers in a separate voice to keep the staves alive for the whole piece in advance. Or I enter the parts one after another (so there is music from the first to last bar present when entering additional parts). So I think it is _necessary_ to be able to freely define a range instead of only the end.

I think measure numbers should be the most generic unit here. Other option would be ly:make-moment. E.g. 4 1 to define a range.
