If a user has explicitly set the position of a rest this should be
by default, I think ...

Done. If the staff-position property is set it won't attempt to merge
rests at that position. Seems to work well.

... unless some property (mergePitchedRests?) is set true.

I didn't create another property for overriding this behavior. Merging
pitched rests could behave unexpectedly for some users - should one of
the merged rests pitches be respected or should they be at the single
voice position? Also, I'd hate to add a property like this which I'd
expect to be rarely used. It can be worked around with tags (i.e.
pitched rest for the single part, normal rest for combined part). If in
the future there's a need it could be added when the use cases are
better understood.
