Irregular stave-line spacings

I would really like to be able to define where to place lines arbitrarily on the staff; e.g:



It is already possible to define unusual spacings for percussion staves, but not irregular spacings. This would be the key to various types of piano tab and other unusual notation.

Drag Staves without shaking the whole score. soooooo annoying!

I'm editing 160 orchestral pieces this week and i have to extract each part individually and edit it. I don't know why, I try to drag the staves and it never happens smoothly, it keeps shaking and ending in all the places I don't want it to be. Does it have something to do with the engraving rules? Please help!
