Graham -

Section "7.5.11 Page layout" lists settings for the \paper block, but
doesn't indicate just how to use the \paper block: where in the structure to
put it and where it applies.  I don't find anything similar for the \layout

In version 2.0, \paper settings within \score could be changed within and
for an associated \score.  For example, I normally want to repeat a score in
a different clef or key, needing different vertical spacing to fit the page
nicely.  Now, in version 2.4.3, I can't find a combination of \score,
\layout, and \paper blocks that don't use, globally, one setting for each

At least one minimally complex example in the documentation would be useful.
Here's code I've been playing with, unsuccessfully.

How would you modify the docs to clarify this?
