Well, all I did was a) unlock the bootloader via htcdev b) install clockworkmod c) install CM d) replace clockworkmod with TWRP to restore the stock ROM
So, I guess the next steps should be reversing b/d by taking recovery back to stock - not sure how to do that - and reversing a by re-locking the bootloader. If someone could help me figure out how to do those 2 things, that seems like a step in the right direction.

I managed to go back to stock recovery, and now the SIM unlock succeeds and is persistent. JOY!
Anyone idea if it's going to re-lock the SIM if I head back to clockworkmod & cyanogenmod? If it'll just bork all over again, then I won't bother, because I'll have to get back to this state again anyways.
Is there a backup solution that covers the ROM and recovery so I can more easily revert to this state later if need be?
