why dont you use a MultiMeasureRestText as a basis?

Thanks for the suggestion; I tried this briefly, but it doesn't seem to improve anything.  The \textLengthOn is then ineffective since it only operates on TextScripts.  I tried replacing it with:

\once\override MultiMeasureRestText #'extra-spacing-width = #'(0 . 0)
\once\override MultiMeasureRestText #'extra-spacing-height = #'(-inf.0 +inf.0)

but this did not appear to do anything either.  Using a multi-measure rest also seems to make the fermata appear off-center to the left of the rest, in many cases.

At this point I think I'm just going to use an extra-spacing-width override on the rest and tune it per use of the music function.  Maybe if I have time at a later date I'll dig into the code and see if there's a way to do this.
