recorder diagram and some woodwind-diagram bugs

hi there-
sorry for cross posting to all the lists, i'd rather not subscribe and
this post seems to apply to all three.

attached is a recorder diagram patch, would love for feedback and for
it to be incorporated.  hopefully it's ok it's not actually in patch
format, it just drops into display-woodwind-diagrams.scm (of course a
corresponding entry needs to be added to
woodwind-data-assembly-instructions in that file as well).

my biggest problems:

- 1h (half-covered) works for eg 'flute two', but on my recorder thumb
(T) it doesn't work -- it just shows fully covered.

- why are partial covers shown as shaded, then there is no distinction
w/trills (ie 1h and 1hT are identical)?

i don't know scheme, so i was mainly pattern-matching from existing
diagrams.  some issues i had while trying to figure this out:

- what is the purpose of the baked-in cc/lh/rh grouping?

- i can't find doc for draw-instructions rules -- seems to determine
whether keys are hidden unless specified -- i didn't want that
behavior, but was stuck unexpectedly getting it for a while.

- difference between identity and return-1 -- they sound identical to
me (when xy-scaling), but gave different results.

- the style used encourages a lot of duplicated code -- it needs to be
refactored so that keys are defined as simple declarative structures
(with properties like name, group, position, complexity, stencil,
textual-representation) and graphical/textual-commands derived

- similarly, key positions should be described in relative terms --
most stuff is absolute w/brittle hardcoding.

- explicit support for when there is no text-override (key name
instead of graphical stencil) available.  i tripped across a
previously reported bug that doesn't seem to have made it to the issue
list even though it's a crash:

  \markup \override #'(graphical . #f) {

C:/Program Files (x86)/LilyPond/usr/share/lilypond/current/scm/display-woodwind-
diagrams.scm:1977:20: In procedure = in expression (= 0 (assoc-get node draw-ins
C:/Program Files (x86)/LilyPond/usr/share/lilypond/current/scm/display-woodwind-
diagrams.scm:1977:20: Wrong type: #f

also broken for saxophone (a different error tho), but works for piccolo.
for tin-whistle, seems to be from use of CENTRAL-COLUMN-HOLE-H-LIST

- when using \override #'(graphical . #f) (is there a way to call this
"textual"?) with an empty keylist, should show all possible text
stencils (as it currently does for graphical).  also, how are partial
coverings/trills handled in this case?

- would be nice if i didn't have to edit display-woodwind-diagrams.scm
and instead could just \include my raw .scm file from a .ly file.
