The standard way to do double spacing which everyone recommends as clean
and neat is to use the `setspace` package since it doesn't double-space
your footnotes which is generally desired.

Turns out that (a) this isn't the typographical standard of
double-spacing (b) it's not the same as Microsoft Word which everyone
else's extended essays/dissertations/theses will be written in.

So instead use this:

    \usepackage[doublespacing]{setspace}
    \setstretch{2}

and if you change the spacing be sure to do it again:

    \singlespacing
    [...]
    \doublespacing\setstretch{2}
