The two are not exclusive.  There is currently a default, and it doesn't 
prevent you from controlling the bar lines.

Only ossia staves that end at the written end of the music are relevant to the

the main staves in that case.

I'm not sure what you mean by this; Gould says it does when it's not the end of 
the piece.
