Perhaps that was the idea (this is ancient code) - putting in a hairpin
does not affect the spacing, so if the staffs were much closer by
default then things would start clashing when hairpins were added.
However, the placing of hairpins under the notes ignores the note
positions, so they already easily clash with the note heads themselves.
I think it might be work just to have the default spacing rather less,
I'll look into it.
