Thanks for this!

I wouldn't describe this behaviour as "packing notes as tightly as
possible" - the first note gets enormous amount of space. Don't you
think that packed-spacing is bugged itself?

Regardless of whether this is intended or not, i suggest changing the
way it works, because it causes bad files to be easily produced: just
a few days ago Michael Dykes posted a question about the attached
piece (in "Not enough space between certain words" thread). Obviously
he didn't know about the need to revert packed-spacing, which resulted
in a badly typeset piece.
