Oops. doco bug. Added the folowing.

You can control the expansion by setting the property
@code{Score.skipBars}. If this is set to true, Lily will not expand
empty measures, and the multimeasure rests automatically adds the
appropriate number.

Nice try. Unfortunately, the MM rest engraver must be able to see bar
lines, so it won't work at Voice level.
