Another beginner question, but can't seem to find the answer in the documentation: is it possible to define a constant number of measures per staff system?

The Notation Reference (at 4.3.1) suggests:

For line breaks at regular intervals use \break separated by skips and repeated with \repeat. For example, this would cause the following 28 measures (assuming 4/4 time) to be broken every 4 measures, and only there:
  \repeat unfold 7 {
    s1 \noBreak s1 \noBreak
    s1 \noBreak s1 \break
  { the actual music... }

The caveat here is that all measures have to have the same length, so time signature changes have to be coded manually. Worse: if there should be any changes after the fact they have to manually be added to that breaking layer too.
