I'm not sure what you mean.
I suggest that this would be added to spacing alists, for example

\paper {
  system-system-spacing #'average-gap = #4

would mean that the desired whitespace area is 4 staffspace * line width.

Actually, i think that it may be possible to remove basic-distance and
minimum-distance after "area spacing" is implemented.  In other words,
i think average-gap, padding and stretchability could turn out to be
enough parameters for vertical spacing purposes, with average-gap
taking the role of basic-distance.  But that will show in testing, we
need to have a working prototype first (Joe said he will do this).
I've identified two potential problems that may appear, and ideas for solutions:
Are the descriptions clear enough?


PS Joe, how did you like my Credo example?
