For my instrumental scores, I need to create a proper title page using
bookTitleMarkup. Unfortunately, there are several problems:

-) The lines of the markup are never stretched to be spaced evenly on the page

-) If you use hardcoded vertical distances between the lines, the footer line
will be placed either too high or two low, depending on whether some header
fields use one or two lines

-) There is no page break possible inside the bookTitleMarkup, so you have to
manually add a \pageBreak\allowPageTurn right before the score.

-) The normal title markup can only be generated by abusing the
scoreTitleMarkup field.

Attached is a sample score showing these problems: In one score the instrument
name takes up just one line, in the other score it takes three lines. As a
consequence, the publisher footer line on the title page is either way too
much up or way too much down on the page...

Is there any way to create the bookTitleMarkup in a way that

1) allows page breaks in between (i.e. on the second page there should be the
"normal" title markup

2) the contents of the title page are stretched, so that one does not have to
use explicit \vspace{..}, which does not work at all.
