Well, I would have been done by lunchtime, but I got distracted by other things. It's good to be retired!
I got the yahoo JSON quotes working well before my daily 4PM automatic quote grabber ran. It's all good now, and gave me the opportunity to clean up a bunch of my scripts, now that the quote grabber is all in one function that everything else calls. Just flip a parameter and it will grab quotes from any of 4 sources.

I still have a problem in that Yahoo seems to be the only convenient place to get CEF NAV data. Unfortunately, googlefinance doesn't seem to have them, so my googlesheet portfolio is broken now. Starting to wonder if I should set up a private web server that would quickly grab NAV's from yahoo behind the scenes whenever it got accessed.
