The following code works in 2.18: system-system-spacing #'padding = #6 but not in 2.19. After I manually edited .ly file and changed the code to read system-system-spacing.padding = #6, the vertical spacing was typeset correctly.

> I see that the command that emits this syntax is

Command: System to System Padding
Allows control over the padding between successive systems down the page. (A system is all the staffs representing the music at one time, sometimes called a "line" of music).
Location: Object Menu ▶ Score ▶ Typesetter ▶ Print Layout ▶ Vertical Spacing
Internal Name: SystemSystemPadding

I think it is the case that 2.18 supports the newer syntax, so it would be possible to update the command ready for the 2.20 release of LilyPond. I think there may be a lot more commands affected by this syntax change. I'll file a bug report for this.
