The vertical spacing sets distances between Y axis groups,
ie. horizontal lines such as Lyrics and Staff contexts. Apparently,
this distance must be shortened when the extremes are lyrics or chord

The workaround is to decrease betweensystemspace 

I am not sure what the best solution is:

1. we could ignore lyrics and chordnames (and only set distances
between staves).  This is an easy hack, but I think it would look bad
when there are many stanzas underneath the bottom staff. The next
system would come very close to the bottom lyrics line.

2. we could make betweensystemspace dependent on the type of context
(staff or non-staff) at the extremes. Complex and it's not clear what
the proper distance should be.
