YES!!  Thank you!

For extra credit: When I applied this technique, the slurs appeared only
in the lower octave.  Is this a bug?  working as designed?  Is there a
quick way to get slurs on both octaves?

This is the desired behaviour! If you have chords of music that really belong to one and the same voice, you should only have one slur. At least, that's the answer usually given by the main authors of Lilypond whenever this question appears. If you find some exception in a music typesetting book or in a score published by
some of the major publishers, send a bug report on Lilypond.
