I see, thanks.  I did use --engines=luatex.  I was aware that Mark II had been superseded by Mark IV, but I hadn't realized that texexec was the same thing as Mark II.  OK, so I won't worry about that issue any more.

It seems that my only remaining problem is the aforementioned TeXShop issue.  I will keep working on it.
