In all printed scores that I have, the spacing is much larger. In particular, 
lilypond tries to stuff 6 measures into the same amount of space where my 
printed score doesn't even have four.

        \override Score.SeparationItem #'padding = #0.5
helps to a great extent.

Will do.

Ah thanks, I wasn't aware of that difference between r and R

No, the rests are now centered, but the first fermata is still too far to the 
right, and the second fermata is too far to the left.

Thanks for your
