3 is fine; 2 is too close IMO

This seems to be a dangerous variable: 9 is not enough; more than 9
makes systems to be closer than staves in a system, which one should
always avoid.

In my example, possibly staves should benefit from a hard padding on
top, say 4 spaces or so. Otherwise lyrics collide with the next staff.
