    Implement MeasureSpanner

    This patch creates a spanner whose ends are oriented to measure
    boundaries, a frequent request from users.  The ends of the
    spanner may be aligned in various ways to prefatory material.
    The spanner may hold text or markup in a centered gap.

    The spanner is begun with the command '\startMeasureSpanner'
    and ended with '\stopMeasureSpanner'.

    Provide two regression tests.

Not sure, if in any relase already...
