No it's not too obvious and maybe I need to work through all the
options again and document what went wrong each time but I did try to
run lilo on each: some ran without complaint but didn't solve the
problem, and some resulted in lilo complaining something along the
lines that it was using the current boot device and that device x (a
numeric representatiion, sorry, didn't note it) wasn't a device in
which it could write its stuff.

Well, it encourages me!

Yes, found that. Mostly the differences are that the one I worked
from uses mdadm and that one uses raidtools2 but I thought they said
the same things really and I couldn't get either approach: mdadm or
raidtools/raidtab, to work for me.
One thing: I asssume that mdrecoveryd isn't holding an inode active?
I _think_ I've failed just as totally after killing mdrecoveryd but
can't vouch for having done that every time.
