No "folded version" is usually created at any time.  The
Simultaneous_music_iterator is running at interpretation time and is
walking through all parts of the music in parallel, generating stream
events in musical time order.  Those are usually not collected even
though the Part_combine_iterator or Auto_change_iterator or \addQuote do
record the results for later use.  But those are exceptions.
