[ Lilypond 2.11.12 ; Mac OS X 10.4.9 ]

Hello, all!

In recent versions of Lilypond, I find that the first element of
every measure is generally too close to the preceding barline for my
taste -- i.e., there isn't enough left-padding on the first note or
rest or whatever (n.b., the spacing issue is especially egregious
when the first item is an accidental, arpeggio, or other "note

I've had some lilypond hacking time recently, so I've been digging into the spacing code. The stuff I'm trying to do is nowhere near complete and I don't yet understand the code fully, but I've put what I have so far in the "jneeman" branch of the git repository. If anyone is sufficiently motivated and technically able to build lilypond from git, I'd appreciate some feedback on the spacing changes.

Awesome that you've been able to get your fingers dirty in the spacing engine. You've breached into one of the last domains of the "Han-Wen only" code. Probably only the grace-timing code in the iterators is left as the last outhold of sole Han-Wenness in Lily.

I'm glad to see that many kludges are disappearing, but a little worried that there might be subtle spacing corrections that disappear because of this. Do pay close attention to the regtest, especially all the spacing-*.ly files.

One of the problems of working on the spacing is that it tends to affect all tests, making it more difficult to see the effect of a fix.
