4.5.2 New spacing area

New sections with different spacing parameters can be started with newSpacingSection. This is useful when there are sections with a different notions of long and short notes.

In the following example, the time signature change introduces a new section, and hence the 16ths notes are spaced wider.

\time 2/4
c4 c8 c
c8 c c4 c16[ c c8] c4
\time 4/16
c16[ c c8]

The \newSpacingSection command creates a new SpacingSpanner object, and hence new \overrides may be used in that location.
