Would it not be fairly easy to create a variation of \RemoveEmptyStaffContext so that lines consisting only of rests would be reduced at least to one line of multimeasure rests so the flute, etc. player can count their rests? It is typical of French instrumental parts to put each pair of instruments on a score which has two staves when the parts are different and one staff when the two instruments play the same thing ( a2 ). This is common in orchestral music of Ravel, Debussy, etc. and it works fine to use \RemoveEmptyStaffContext except when both instruments have rests that happen to occupy a whole line.

TIA for considering this,

Paul Scott
