Re: \compressMMRests, compressEmptyMeasures or \compressFullBarRests?

Hello Jacques,

Frescobaldi does not always know the latest Lilypond language. As far as I see 
\compressMMRests and \comressEmptyMeasures do the same, but 
\compressEmptyMeasures works like a toggle that needs to be unset by 
\expandEmptyMeasures (it’s basically just a shorthand for \set Score.skipBars 
= ##t, while \compressMMRests should compress only the following Rest, so it 
checks if the music is a MM Rest and only then sets Score.skipBars = ##t once.

So if you want to compress every MM Rest over a passage you use 
\compressEmptyMeasures, if you want to compress one particular MM Rest you use 
\compressMMRests, I guess.
