I finally go around trying mdwlist to suspend and resume a list because 
Bovani's solution would not let me to insert a \quote in an asparaenum 
At one point, as I was tinkering, all the TeXshop pdf typeset pages 
went blank with the heading still live. Restarting TeXshop straightened 
things but, while it lasted, it was impressive. (Being a born tinkerer, 
I was tinkering on a copy so remained quite peaceful.)
But I had no luck with mdwlist and ended up using a minipage as a 
workaround, if not exactly an elegant one.

Essentially, mdwlist reacts with other packages in ways that I was not 
able to delineate and that thus could not manage.
For instance, the console objected to
After I had commented that out, the notes looked completely different. 
But why should a list environment affect newtheorem?
There were other interactions and, for instance, mdwlist changes some 
of the asparaenum formats.

Thus are the joys of a free world and I am bringing this up in a 
totally disinterested spirit—for a change—and only for the curious to 
puzzle out.
