Probably Robin Fairbairns typed into a real computer:

>  \setcounter{savesecnum}{\value{secnumdepth}}
>  \setcounter{secnumdepth}{0}
>  \section{title}
>  \setcounter{secnumdepth}{\value{savesecnum}}

>(unfortunately, it has to be this convoluted, because \setcounter is a
>global operation.)

\section{A numbered section}
{\makeatletter\c at secnumdepth=0 \section{An unnumbered section}}
\section{Another numbered section}
