I just fixed this, the fix will appear in next release.

What do you mean exactly?  The versions of .ly examples are not always
last LilyPond version, but as the syntax doesn't change every release,
this is fair.

I prefer "Examples".  Any other thoughts?

Then see the templates and read "3.4 Extending the templates" in the
Learning Manual.

If you can provide us such examples with descriptions, we'll be happy to
add them to LSR, and maybe to the docs if they can easily fit in one
existing section.

Fitting music on fewer pages requires a compromise between margins,
global font size, systems count, between-system-padding,
between-system-space and other layout properties; as this issue is a
matter of taste and highly depends on the music in the score, it's
difficult to write a function that takes less arguments than all those
parameters, and yet which gives a result better than what you can
achieve by hand and trial-and-error.
