Many thanks to all the people who replied so rapidly to my question, which
was (nearly):
"If varsN is a list of N variables, and if exprsM is a list of of M
expressions, each one linear in the variables of varsN, what is the neatest
way to extract the matrix of coefficients?"
I doubt that anyone can surpass the answer by Richard Mercer:

Outer[Coefficient, exprsN, varsM]

Many thanks, Richard.  There were other good ones too, but this one
requires no foreknowledge of N or M, and uses no indices.  Great!
