Speaking of \protect, how does one look into the bowels of a protected 
command?  Case in point:  I' happily running latex on command line and 
using \show to dig into definitions of various uglies, but whenever I 
hit a \protect'ed command, as in \show\command, I get \protect\command. 
  What should I do to to move further in decyphering these?
