the \layout block only affects what's in a score. Page layout (margins,
titles, etc) fall outside that and therefore are in the \paper block.
Perhaps better names can be found for paper/layout; suggestions


Just thinking out loud here ... so there's an inside-of-score /
outside-of-score dichotomy going on here. I don't think I had ever
realized that ...

So that means that ragged-right (which currently lives in \layout) is
perceived as inside-of-score, whereas ragged-bottom (which currently
lives in \paper) is outside-of-score?
