Grr, it doesn't work so well, though: This will not work in the first measure 
of a line or immediately after a time signature change!

See the attached file, where measures 3, 5 and 7 use that invisible spacer 
rest. It seems that minimum-length will be the minimum length for the whole 
measures, not for the rest itself. So time signature and clef will already 
take a large portion of the desired minimum width and the space left for the 
rest will be too small again...

Unfortunately, it seems that MultiMeasureRest does not use the minimum-X-
extent property, because setting 
   \override MultiMeasureRest #'minimum-X-extent = #'(-5 . 18)
does not have any effect.
