Aha! That works, but not quite as you described.  I had to use "s"
rests, otherwise the unwanted staff line still showed up.

After converting to the standard "one piano staff", the melody
line looks like this:

        melody =  \relative c'' {
          \clef treble
          \key g \major
                \override Score.VerticalAxisGroup #'remove-first = ##t
                s1 | s1 | s1 | s1 | 
                d,8\mf e fis g fis e d e |

The two sections in the score was a hack because I couldn't get
RemoveEmptyStaffContext working last year when I first needed this
feature.  For a while I was using two score {} blocks and not
getting this problem, but MIDI output only worked for the second
section, the measure numbers got reset, and I could see it was
making things unnecessarily complex.

Thanks so much for your help!
