EDIT/UPDATE: Apparently, the noise is the water pump. It wasn't displaying any of the classic signs of water pump failure, so that never even occurred to me. But eventually the pump seized and shredded the timing belt. Replaced those bits, and it's back to normal, sounding great (or, as great as a Neon can sound, anyway). Thanks to everyone who replied to this with ideas!
Anyone have any idea what this noise might be?
This video is documenting an odd rattle that is apparently coming from the bottom-end of the engine. It's a 2L SOHC four cylinder. No idea what's making the noise, but it doesn't seem to affect drivability any, nor does it raise the temperature or muck with the oil pressure.

Dodgy motor mounts in this lovely 1998 Neon. It hasn't quite broken loose
yet, but we will get up on YouTube when it does.
How to - 1998 2.0 SOHC neon timing belt replacement
I learned how to do this from watching videos from another you tuber. His
name is Dave and his you tube account is davidsfarm I believe. Check out
his videos, they helped me learn to do several repairs and saved my friends
and me thousands of dollars worth of repairs. Thanks Dave.

Dodge Hellcat-Viper-Hellcat Thrash Battle! - Roadkill Ep. 38
Roadkill is now powered by Dodge! To kick off the sponsorship, Finnegan and
Freiburger called for some brand new 2015 supercars: the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger
SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat, plus a 645-horsepower Dodge Viper GT.
Why? For an epic thrash, of course! This video has more tire smoke than
you've ever seen from these cars, plus a big, irresponsible surprise at a
motocross track. There are guest spots from Carlos Lago from Motor Trend,
Fred Williams from Dirt Every Day, and pro drifter Tony Angelo. None of
these guys should have been handed the keys. And by the way, we used the
Hellcat red keys the whole time.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
