Fine, thank you Uwe.  This does indeed produce results
far closer to my needs than any previous version, and
I will now look to see if I can get Sections (and Subsections,
which I had not previously mentioned, but which too are
of class "top") to open verso when appropriate, whilst
ensuring that Chapters continue to open recto as before.

The reference to \value was also very useful; I was
unaware of its existence.
