Sooo... I may have blown up my battery.

You bet!   Last time I let my battery completely discharge, I had to  
do some voodoo to get it to running state, but nothing out of the wiki  

This time, on the other hand, my FR shuts down even in the NOR boot  
menu between AUX presses.   I am ordering a battery tonight so I can  
call around again.

Unfortunately, I don't have a multimeter around, so I can't even know  
the real state of the battery or the charger-supplied voltage.  My  
best option now is getting a known good one and hoping the phone starts.

This brings me back to my original question: do any diagnostic  
procedures already exist?  I have an A6(date code 20081104) so it does  
not work without a battery.

Thanks for the support
