I've just now gotten lily 1.7.15 running and was trying out the markup
abilities over multimeasure rests.  I was surprised to see that the number
of bars rest disappeared.  The above posts would seem to explain it,
though.  I think I'd need to put the number of measures below the staff and
the tempo marking above.  Do I need to specify the default font for
measures rest?  If so, what is it called?

The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating system
and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the world.
