Hi all,

There's a much easier way: set staff-size to something really big.

I suggest that we adopt this as an official policy: fixes for
easy-to-overlook things should be documented by regtests using
big/enormous font-size (e.g. between 30 and 100, depending on issue).
So, everyone checking regtests should pay extra attention to details
when he sees a big-font regtest, while small differences between
normal-sized tests can usually be ignored.

Do you agree?
Shall i mention this in CG 9.2, "What to look for"?
