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

 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.

(note from the BugMeister: would it be possible to have min-system-count as
