This is the essential point, and leads directly to the unique parametric
form I sought. Do such matrixes, which are both symmetric and orthogonal,
arise often?

The other evening, trying to sleep, I picked up an unpublished 47-page 1993
paper, where Theorems 12 and 13 derive complicated trigonometric
epxressions for the optimally compacting such "lapped" transforms. But it
took a while to prove the Theorem 1 I'd proven 20 years earlier, and asked
for in this thread. The only hint the paper gave was "From the definition
we easily derive the following theorem." ::whack::
