Feature Request:

Implement max-system-count, which will set the maximum permissible number of
systems on a page.

system-count requires a fixed number of systems on a page.  max-system-count
would limit the maximum number of systems, but would allow fewer systems if
the spacing algorithms decided there should be fewer, or if there were fewer
systems left in the score.

Here is an example of how system-count can fall short:

%%%%%  Begin snippet

  system-count = 4

  \repeat unfold 7 {c1 \break}

%%%%%% End snippet

I would like this example to give a two-page layout: 4 systems on the first
page, 3 on the second.  Instead, it gives me a one-page layout, with one
measure on the first 3 systems and 4 on the last.

The warning message during compilation is:

warning: cannot find line breaking that satisfies constraints
