I read the bugthread before my first response.  I still fundamentally
don't understand where you're getting that the 1 and -1 lines are
extra-fat and fill the remaining space in the content box.  Can you
point to where in the spec you're getting that?  It was 100% not my or
fantasai's intention, so if it *is* the result of something we wrote,
it's a bug and needs to be fixed.  (I know that the 0/-0 lines thing
was decided *before* we added gutters and the ability to distribute
tracks apart, so it's definitely *possible* that there's an accidental
interaction I'm not seeing.)
