Thanks to both Herbert and Juergen.  I see now that some of my  
confusion came from being a bit sloppy with details.  It seems the  
best way to create the picture I want is something like

\pscustom[fillstyle=solid, fillcolor=lightgray,
		\psarc[linewidth=2pt, arrows=->, arrowscale=2](0,0){2}{20}{100}
		\psarc[linewidth=2pt, arrows=->, arrowscale=2](0,0){2}{100}{180}
		\psarc[linewidth=2pt, arrows=->, arrowscale=2](0,0){2}{180}{260}
		\psarc[linewidth=2pt, arrows=->, arrowscale=2](0,0){2}{260}{340}

		\psarcn[linewidth=2pt, arrows=->, arrowscale=2](0,0){1}{340}{260}
		\psarcn[linewidth=2pt, arrows=->, arrowscale=2](0,0){1}{260}{180}
		\psarcn[linewidth=2pt, arrows=->, arrowscale=2](0,0){1}{180}{100}
		\psarcn[linewidth=2pt, arrows=->, arrowscale=2](0,0){1}{100}{20}
