Well, I'm finished with the sorting script, and it works, for suitably
small quantities of 'works'... The only question remaining is how to
insert the pseudo-section headers into \thebibliography environment.

Simply pasting it as a separate paragraph doesn't work. Using \item
results in the line with the pseudo-header being numbered, which is
definitely not what I want. The [label] option for \item I saw mentioned
somewhere doesn't seem to work within \thebibliography.
Is there any reasonable way to squeeze them in?

the ams author faq
http://www.ams.org/authors/author-faq.html
has a question
How can I add some explanatory text between
entries in my bibliography?
the code that is suggested there should work
for you, with perhaps some adjustments to the
vertical spacing.

although the ams author faq has been created
with a bias toward ams publications using the
ams-latex document classes, there are many
questions and answers of interest to all authors.
