re the longest rests:
1. a perfect longa rest and a maxima rest are not the same;
2. a perfect longa rest should take three spaces (like current
emmentaler rests.M3mensural), not four (as, I fear, the bravura
mensuralRestLongaPerfecta implies)
3. a maxima rest consists of two (or three) longa rests, similar to
rests.M3neomensural, so much that theoretically one can't tell a
maxima rest from two (three) longa rests.  renaissance version of
multimeasure rests use groups of longa rests at different staff
positions, like

I can't check right now, but I think LilyPond doesn't use longa glyphs
in ligatures: longae are drawn by adding stems to brevis glyphs.
