Well that was pfestive.  Getting the faucet apart was the biggest 
hurdle.  It took
some time just to figure out what tool I needed to get the first 
setscrew out - Torx T10.
Then with all the scale and corrosion it took some time to get the 
handle off, then get
the rest of the parts freed up.  Reassembly was no problem with freely 
moving, clean

But it didn't work, so I took a break.  Relaxed with a cold beverage, 
then went back to
it.  And, as suggested, the aerator was completely clogged.  It seemed 
odd, because I
had cleaned it before swapping out the faucet cartridge as well as the 
charcoal cartridge
in the filter.  If only I had waited until after I messed with it to 
clean, could have saved
myself a few minutes.

But all is well now.
