Short story:
    Works a treat!

Longer story:
     Details will have to wait (it's 3AM right now) but to keep it short -- I 
put the two uI* files (ignored the .dtb file) onto an ext2 partition of a USB 
stick.  Followed the instructions on Martin's page, and successfully installed 
back to the same USB stick (a trick I've used frequently in the past).  System 
booted and ran just fine.

Next test:
    1) Install from/to a uSD card
    2) Install from a uSD card to an eSATA disk drive --leaving the /boot 
partition on the uSD.
    3) Anything else you might want to try?

    The u-boot version that's on the "ultimate" is 
=> version
U-Boot 2016.11+dfsg1-4~20170308~1 (Mar 09 2017 - 01:27:49 +0000)
arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc (Debian 6.3.0-8) 6.3.0 20170221
GNU ld (GNU Binutils for Debian) 2.28
    So it's not current, but it's also not the ancient original from 2011.
