If you use the stable version and want the centered rest given by
R instead of the left adjusted one given by r, you could attach the
text to a spacing rest in a parallel line of music:
<R2. s2.^"My text">

I don't understand what you do with the empty bars, in 17/8,
you should get a two measure rest using R8*34 or
R8*17 R8*17, I just tried it myself.

I must admit I've never heard about a piece in 17/8, but I once
played a piece in alternating 11/8 and 13/8 by some Russian composer
who apparantly wrote it as a wedding march for his own wedding.
I wonder how he and his bride manage to walk in rhythm. ;-)

Just about your last question :
You can't have markup on 'R', but you cant on 'r'

If you use lilypond 1.7.x, you may use :

\once \property Voice.MultiMeasureRestNumber \override #'text = #'(roman "my markup")

before the 'R' you want to mark...

Thanks, I am stupid not to have used the search, I just went and looked
in the reference manual and overlooked it.

Now I have other questions, I get my time signature printed at the end
of this first line, how can I force this one to be on the next line ?
I also have a really funny thing with whole-measure rests: my score is
in \time 17/8 and it starts with two empty measures. To get this I seem
to need  R8*17
three times, for some reason. Probably I did not understand the meaning
of the R symbol.
And last question, I do not seem to be able to put text on top of the
resting measures with ^"160bpm" like R8*17^"160bpm" or so. I need to put
it on the first note, which makes the tempo appear only at the third
measure. Again I suspect I am doing it wrong.
