Umm, I don't think that's what Joe said.  I think Joe said that the spacing
between ChoirStaff and the PianoStaff is determined by
'after-last-staff-spacing, and the Lyrics fit in the gap.  I know that's how
it worked in  my lyrics spacing test runs.

I wasn't able to make any difference between staves based upon my lyrics
settings.  So I think the behavior you want is what is implemented.  Can you
show us an example that doesn't work properly?
