@egreg, yes, I had linked it in the second sentence of my opening post.

@lockstep, thanks for the reminder. I'm still getting used to the system. :-)

I ultimately took this path with some modification and it worked. Thanks very much!

Thanks, @egreg! This is really helpful. I've made some modification and posted it in an edit above.

@egreg ... What I'm trying to figure out is stated in my opening post: how do I get LaTeX to detect which front matter pages present so that given any combination of front matter pages, the very last will execute \firstpage (or \beginthesis in my version) while the others will execute \newpage?

@egreg, if I compile a document using sblessay.cls, my front matter page numbering does not get numbered consecutively when \firstpage is used to make a page break — that is, they skip pages, so one page can be iv and the next page vi. It really should be \newpage, but if you notice, the abstract environment and the tableofcontents command have both \newpage (at the top) and \firstpage (at the bottom). I have tried removing \firstpage and keeping \newpage at the top, and the page number skips a page. The only way numbering will become consecutive is if \newpage is at the bottom. [cont]

@egreg, my apologizes. I renamed the command. It's \firstpage which pulls from \newfrontpage.

@egreg, thanks for tip! The sblessay.cls file is here: svn.marshwiggle.net/sbllatex/trunk/latex

Mike, thanks for this approach. Let me mull over it for a day or two.

egreg, the \beginthesis command does something different with page formatting and number so it can't be used in the front matter. What I'm looking to do is find a way to have LaTeX understand that if there isn't an abstract page, for instance, it will \beginthesis, but if there is an abstract page, then it will do a \newpage.
