This reminds me of a question/issue I never asked here.

I sometimes wanted different horizontal space settings for "single Whole
Measure Rest" and "real" multimeasure rests a.k.a "compressed MMR"
(with a number above).

Currently LilyPond does not consider "single Whole Measure Rest" and
"compressed MMR" differently.

1. Are "single Whole Measure Rest" and "compressed MMR" two different
things, and treated as such, with specific rules, etc. in references
like Ross, Read, Gould?

2. Would it make sense to have different grobs to handle these two
with different properties settings ?

Thank you for your attention.
