Ahhhh, you're kidding!!!??

pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover

returned, in my case, "26".

Then, connecting as normal worked!

So somehow the module, which was previously loading automatically, isn't 
any more. I just have to figure out how to make that automatic and I'm 
off to the races again.

I also noticed that once again I have 2 copies of pulse running, one as 
user "Debian-<something>" (the full name is elided in ps -ef) and one as 
my normal user. That is presumably an artifact of the upgrade from 
Jessie to Stretch -- I had previously removed the system one to fix an 
earlier problem but it seems I can connect and use the headphones 
without doing so now, if I manually load the module.

Thanks a lot for everyone's help with this one.
