Ahhh!  That would have satisfied me.  Too bad I was
not sufficiently patient to wait for Mathias's
response to my query.  (I had really thought that this
was an easy one, and that I would quickly be pointed
in the right direction.  When that did not happen, I
assumed that no one had already implemented the
capability.)  Overlays are probably a better way to
implement it.  However, for my own purposes, the extra
feedback from my own implementation (which I posted
elsewhere in this thread) about how many lines are
affected by commands makes it more useful to me.

Up to now, I had not been regarding EmacsWiki as a
resource for this sort of quest.  I will consult it in
future.  Thanks for the pointer.

Regards,
  David V.
