I trial-and-errored my way through it.  I still don't understand it.  Particularly - why did black under-promote.?

----------edit----------------
Went away, and came back to it after a good night's sleep.

Still trial and error on a couple of the moves, but I understand it better. For instance, Black underpromotes to prevent just the checkmate that white eventually achieves anyway.

I also understand, and echo, piranha62's question "why not 5Rg5 -- ?"  I'll look through the later comments to see if someone answered that.

.... I see that an answer was given in comment 24, but that answer doesn't convince me,  However, looking at the board after move 4, I see that 5. ... pawn to f5 would be the spoiler to 5. Rg5.
(Perhaps kernel-panic's answer in comment 24 was about what would happen AFTER 5.  . . .  f5)

Very nifty.
