My guess is that the hack was introduced to compensate for some
version of LilyPond, where the acciaccatura slur was curved
upwards by defaul, and was placed at the note heads or even
below the beams. The best (?!) way to find out why is probably
to try the original code without the extra fix using the original
version of LilyPond. You can also get a hint from the layout in the
existing PS/PDF versions in Mutopia.

Remove the following line, and it works fine:

    \once\override Slur   #'extra-offset = #'( 0 . 8 )

    \once\override NoteHead   #'font-size = #-4
    \once\override Stem   #'font-size = #-4

However, as a programmer and musician, and a maintainer of some
Mutopia piece (not the above, though) I need to know what happens
here, so I looked up and tried to understand why Keeler (the
maintainer of the above Mutopia entry) put the Slur extra-offset
there in the first place.

I have cut and tested a minimal example to submit to this list and
a picture png so that it should be easy to read and understand the
example - hopefully!

Thank you for reading so far:-)
