This parameter is used with %%maxshrink to adjust the place where automatic music line breaks may occur.

To know how many music symbols will be in a music line, the width of each symbol is computed by:

	width = minimal_space * 'maxshrink' + natural_space * (1 - 'maxshrink')
When the sum of all the symbol widths is greater than
	(paper_width - margins) * 'breaklimit'
and smaller than
	(paper width - margins)
a line break may occur.

The value float is limited between 0.5 (line breaks may occur when the line is 50% full) and 1 (the music line is split at the exact computed symbol).
