They are pretty much equivalent except when using articulations on
non-chord notes that have an event listener (like the Fingering_engraver
for fingerings).  Those are sent to the event listener when using
simultaneous music but are engraved using the New_fingering_engraver
when they are written in-chord.  If there is no event listener (like
usually for string numbers), they are left to deal with for the
New_fingering_engraver either way and there is no difference.

So there is a difference between the look of

<< c4-1 e-3 >>
<c-1 e-3>4

but not between

<< c4\1 e\3 >>
<c\1 e\3>4

Unless, of course, you add/remove engravers.
