In order to make a _horizontal_ space with a value in milimeters (and
not in "staff-spaces").

I promise I did several trials based on your code but they all failed!

Thank you Neil for these hints.

I don't want to take advantage of your kindness but would it be possible
to have a "ready-to-use" version of this?
