Thanks, Herbert. I'm going to wait a day or two before accepting, to see if a ``pure memoir'' solution appears...

comment What is good practice when preparing a package for CTAN?
Sam, thank you for your encouragement to learn about the world of .dtx. The reason I've not taken the time to study it so far is that I haven't had a need to. I do respect it as "literate programming", though my lazier half tends to agree with Alan Munn. And then, there's so much else to get through!!!
