Well I was hoping I could modify an existing snippet

http://lsr.dsi.unimi.it/LSR/Item?id=789

where we show how to create 'custom dynamics' using a space glyph and
then you could center this between staves as you would a dynamic.

However using

MyDynamic = #(make-dynamic-script (markup #:line (
#:dynamic "p")))

as my base I cannot - because I don't understand Scheme - workout how
to tell the script to use a rest glyph instead of a dynamic one. Of if

MyDynamic = #(make-dynamic-script (markup #:line (
#:scripts:rest.3 )))

or

MyDynamic = #(make-dynamic-script (markup #:line (
#:dynamic #"scripts:rest.3")))

Doesn't work.

This also, assuming it is just a syntax misunderstanding, opens up a
few possibilities for my own music.
