comment Defining `$$$ $$$` to align
I am sitting here grinning, thinking of the poor bastard at any journal publishing a paper with this level of hack scattered throughout. The grinning is because I am (so far) not that poor bastard.

I believe that is the droid I am looking for. Thank you.

comment Defining a macro for making slides from same source document?
Thanks for the very clean example. I had read that far, and perhaps I should note that my MWE is a bit too minimal. Additional macros \Section defined in it were set up to call \section if in article mode, and start a new frame with the section title as frame title otherwise. The result was, I hoped, going to allow me to hack up some slides with only a few inserts of \nextframe macro calls. The need to work in environments precludes that hack -- it would appear that if I want slides I will either have to go "full beamer" or get medieval with find/replace.

@cyberSingularity that makes sense. I think other packages must be more appropriate to my ambitions here. I really don't want something so environmental.

Based on your suggestion, I did go into the manual (wow, to page 200!) to find the section on supporting material. The paradigm appears to be that other material is supplementary to slides, rather than the other way around. What I really did -- or tried to do -- was mainly set myself up with a \nextframe macro and then redefine \subsection etc to call it to set slide titles. But of course I was stymied by the environmental behavior. I'm out of ideas on this one after a few hours and going to look for a "dumber" slide package.
