SPACER allows you to do things that are inappropriate for stylesheet
representation, like line-by-line control of inter-line spacing in an
e.e. cummings poem and line-by-line indentation control in source code
listings.  So, I think it's useful with or without stylesheets.

Stylesheet control is clearly much more appropriate for generic control
of spacing (line controlling the inter-line spacing in text).
