Hi Neil:

The closest I've got is in creating a new staff context with the properties of \RemoveEmptyStaffContext, but it only allows you to choose whether a particular stave can be hidden or not.

If you read the Hara_kiri_engraver docs, it says

Like Axis_group_engraver, but make a hara-kiri spanner, and add interesting items (ie. note heads, lyric syllables and normal rests)

Properties (read)

    keepAliveInterfaces (list)
A list of symbols, signifying grob interfaces that are worth keeping a staff with remove-empty set around for.

If that property were settable (on the fly), we could add MultiMeasureRest to (or remove it from) the keepAliveInterfaces as desired -- that would solve the problem!

Developers: any chance you can do this (or something similar, with an equivalent result)?
I've still got a few Euros burning a hole in my PayPal account...  =)
