Thanks for all your very helpful comments.  I've played with it a bit 
more, and now I am sold.  I've got this ADD thing of wanting to see 
"hello world" by the end of chapter one  :-) (as opposed to a starting 
with a "finished" full-featured web site which I can then customize).  
Following Steve's hint, (but perhaps not so much his advice), I found 
main_template and made my own custom/main_template, thereby "butchering" 
my plone, but quickly getting me where I wanted to be.  Since I could 
/theoretically /replace main_template with a "hello world" page, I 
somehow feel much better :-) .
