define-woodwinds-diagram.scm suffers from the same problem as chord-name.scm:
\abs-fontsize doesn't help here at all, because, still, the raise distance will depend on the staff-space resp. staff-size.
The textual display of key names (graphical = ##f) becomes worse as staff-size moves away from the standard 20pt, see attachment.

As to the relative \raise attempt:
Generally an improvement, but I'm still feeling a bit uncomfortable about one aspect of a raise amount depending on the font-size: It's very hard to get to grips with the "unit of measure".
In the current version, it is easy to tell that \raise #1 will raise the markup by exactly 1 staff-space.
Now that a scaling factor depending on the font-size comes into play, this is, of course, no longer true. The staff-size has nothing to do at all with the individual font-size, so this new relative raise unit is neither fish nor fowl.

Let \raise and \lower heed font-size

This is more in line with using them on text, their primary target.

This is actually an incompatible change in meaning but most uses
appear to be more correct afterwards than before, so no convert-ly
rule. Warrants discussion.
