Hi Ben,

> I don't quite follow what you're asking. 

I know what he’s asking about… It’s something I’ve been asking about for quite 
a long time (>5 years): forcing a *measure* or even *group of measures* (in 
OP's case, a single measure) to stretch to accommodate another grob (in OP’s 
case, a TextScript), rather than the current behaviour ("stretch the current 
moment"). The problem is particularly acute in parts with lots of tempo 
markings over multi-measure rests, which don’t tend to stretch accordingly.

It would be nice to be able to arbitrarily set the duration of the moment that 
would (if necessary) be stretched.
