When in doubt, count steps going up.

c and g (ascending) are in different relative octaves; c and f are in the

c . d . e . f =>count 4 notes, so it's the same relative octave.

c . d . e . f . g  => count 5 notes, so it's a different relative octave

This is insensitive to accidentals.  Whenever I am on the boundary and I
can't remember, I just count the notes going up.
