\baselineskip=0pt and (setq line-spacing nil) both mean to typeset lines
as close as possible, without overlapping bounding boxes.  But the
achieved effect is very different, because "source code typography" and
"manual typography" are very different.

I've attached a PDF where the first page uses the default \baselineskip,
the second sets it to zero.  Which one looks more like emacs -Q?
