Post ortho-clinic app't. No MRI, so status of ligaments still uncertain, but the tibia is healing nicely and risk of further cracking is minimal. Immobilizer is off (though suggested for long walks) and theoretically crutches could be shed.
However, the knee is still very stiff (working out which exercises to start with) and although it has not folded under me so far, I am still seized by unreasoning terror that it will - which causes me to forget 'which leg goes after which' like the centipede in the poem. So I'm hanging on to the crutches for now, and have searched youtube for the both-feet method of crutch-walking.

So, physiotherapy ahead. Though I have to say, this is the closest my calves have come to fitting into fashionable boots in my whole adult life.
