Hi, for theoretical work it often is necessary to write several short
systems in one line, interspersed with text.

I don't manage to have
a) new systems continue aligned to the previous system in a line, like
when doing
\line { \score { ... \layout {} } some text \score { ... \layout {} } }

It might be possible to fudge stuff with \stopStaff and \startStaff, but
I still can't get the text interspersed.

b) to have interspersed text appear at useful height with relation to
the surrounding score.

An additional problem is when using lilypond-book: there is no baseline
info for the included images, leading to additional nuisances when
images are to be placed in-line.

Would it be possible to have some Staff property, say, baseline-height
that specifies a Staff line to be aligned with the baseline of
surrounding constructs?  If it were #f, we'd get the old behavior, and
of course only one Staff's baseline-height could be heeded within a
StaffGroup.  This might not be easy to make work in lilypond-book, but
at least for interspersed text and staffs all within Lilypond, it might
