The patch back at
makes sense, and seems flexible enough.  The awkward part was naming
the Voice contexts for the four states of music.  Given that you need
that information in the output of \partcombine
     pc = \displayMusic \partcombine {b2 b ...} {b2 b ...}
for the iterator to see, it seems that music properties are the only
places to put it. Maybe one property that takes the full list of context

Simply letting us specify the Voices _once_ for the whole output of
\partcombine would help a lot.

Include an example in your patch, where we want to rearrange the routing
of soloI, unison, etc., to Voices mid-piece.

The example in the 2008 thread, setting unison directions, is better done
with \context Voice="shared" {\voiceOne} than by changing Voices.

The first use I can imagine is that I would usually want the shared Voice
to be identical with the first-part Voice, but sometimes would want the
shared events to go to the second-part Voice.  In that case, I am thinking
of the Voice output arrangement all at once, so specifying a list of four
is natural.
