Sometimes I feel the answers on this list aren't quite what I'd hoped  
for, but I guess I'm just not asking the questions very well. Anyhow.  
The question I meant to ask was "How can I get appendix numbering  
even though I'm in the \backmatter in memoir" and the answer is  
"issue the \setsecnumdepth{chapter} command as the first thing in the  
\begin{appendices} environment (and use \setcounter{secnumdepth}{-10}  
to turn it off again later)".
