The only thing wrong is that the verse starts with an anacrusis -- a
pickup beat, for which I've used \partial. The notes look perfect, but
the bar numbering is wrong because it's treating the incomplete bar at
the end of the chorus and the completion in the verse as two separate

I can kludge that by using:
  \set Score.currentBarNumber = #9
but that involves me counting the bars, so I'd sooner do something like
  \set Score.currentBarNumber = #(- 'internalBarNumber 1)
except not that because it doesn't work. Drat. Am I going to have to
learn more scheme, or am I getting at the bar number in the wrong way?

I would just not use partial. You know that you can put in a bar line even if the measure isn't complete.
