Thanks for the great links.  The more general question is how to control the cursor without a mouse.  Any info on that subject would be appreciated. 

Not the answer to my question, but the solution to the problem is to open the window: Touchpad Properties > Mouse > Disable Touchpad when USB Mouse present.  Yielding: mouse -> no touchpad, no mouse -> touchpad.  Piece of pie; easy as cake.
