Re: text markup for long multi-measure rests

Yes, I'm aware of that workaround.  I'm trying to use it now, but the
results are rather less-than-satisfactory.

Including a time on the 's' separates the measure with the textscript from
the rest of the multi-measure rest.

     < R1*18 s1_"Allegro" >

Omitting the time on the 's' makes the textscript appear under the entire
multi-measure rest, which is exactly what is wanted.  However it can also
cause very severe horizontal spacing problems, beginning on the line of
the rest, and continuing to the end of the score.  (I can send an example
of this, if anyone is interested.)

     < R1*18 s_"Allegro" >

So I wonder why the effort to add textscripts to multi-measures rests if
they only work with single-measure multi-measure rests, and the < R s >
workaround already provides more (although somewhat flawed) funtionality?
