After downgrade I installed Revolutionary, skipped Recovery install option as recommended, and fastboot flashed custom RUU. To this point all went fine, but now, after fastboot flashing Recovery 4.0.1.4 direct and - after the problem that follows - also via Revolutionary (it will recognise S-Off and offer to download and install Recovery) I still cannot access Recovery - it just hangs at screen with htc letters. Any ideas?

Okay so you went the method of downloading the large file, used the fastboot method to flash the zip file correct (Method 1)? I didn't have to flash a recovery, as the Revolutionary one was there after I did this method. Did you let the system come up fully after doing "fastboot reboot"?

No need to flash recovery. Did you fastboot flash zip twice?

Simple solution for problem with access to re-applied CWM: Of course the CWM patched for Flyer Honeycomb ( revolutionary-cwm-4.0.1.4-flyer.hboot0011.img ) needs to be used, not the Revolutionary original...

You do not need Su if your desire is to backup gb set up then run hc through this process.

Ok, and if I install honeycomb, then need to go back to stock, for say warranty repair, I can get back to stock?

In my view my best bet would be to go back to S-ON with downgrade, and re-try Revolutionary. However when I follow the relevant instructions (misc patch) the RUU will install but will hang at htc letters.
Just fastboot flash the HC custom RUU again.

Yeah, if you made a mess of it you can do that. Or more you can extract the recovery.img from the zip file and fastboot flash that if you want, or re-run the RUU all options will work.

So if I run revolutionary, then install CWM and perform a nandroid, and then want to install honeycomb, do I use the large file or the light file? Again, I am still on stock gingerbread.
