Your attempt to do
\once \override MetronomeMark #'transparent = ##t
was almost right. The only reason that it didn't work is that
the property setting is done at the Voice level by default. Since
the metronome marks are created at the Score level, you have to say
\once \override Score.MetronomeMark #'transparent = ##t

There's definitely no need to split into several scores as was
proposed by Gilles.

Here's the first problem:
The two lines
        e2~ e8 r \tempo 4=90 r4
        \mark \markup{"Andante"}
produce the desired tempo change in the midi output, but result in
"Andante" (which I want to appear in the score) being overlayed by
"<quarternote> = 64" (which I don't want to appear at all).

I've tried all sorts of incantations that I don't really understand,
such as:
        \once \override MetronomeMark #'transparent = ##t
or \set Score.metronomeMark = ##f
in various places in the input.  And I've had some abortive attempts to
switch Metronome_mark_engraver off.

Please could a guru step up and tell me what to do?  Thanks.
