It occurs to me that minimum-length-fraction is probably never supposed to
be larger than length-fraction.  That would mean that the way it increases
the spacing between the notes when it is larger is just an unintended

It seems that length-fraction basically works like a maximum length, and by
default ledger lines will extend as far as they can towards this max length
given the space available.  Then minimum-length-fraction is the minimum
length for when there are collisions, and it can "push" notes further apart
if needed to achieve that minimum length in those cases.
