Well, a direct consequence of removing all 'structure' from 
'structurecounter' is indeed that we get \definecounter and therefore 
need to drop the ones in syst-aux (no big deal as they are only used a 
few times and nowadays we have more than enough \count's; we can always 
turn them into \definevaluecounter or so if needed).

Anyhow, I already did a lot of editing so there's no going back now ... 
I'm making a beta that you can check in a while. In the process 
\currentstructurecounter has become \currentsectioncountervalue and some 
macros got value appended as well.
