/ "Frank A. Christoph" <christo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> was heard to say:
| 2) For two-column output, the book titlepage is also two column, which looks
| terrible.

Fixed. I added a %titlepage-n-columns% parameter.

| 3) I want chapter and section titles to be "exdented" with respect to body
| text. Is that possible? I tried the opposite, indenting the body by
| increasing %block-start-indent%. This had a strange effect: it doesn't
| indent most body text because I guess paragraphs aren't considered blocks,
| but if I nest an itemized-list in a paragraph (not between them) it indents
| not only the list but also the surrounding paragraph.

This appears to be a bug also. I should probably make
first-line-start-indent a parameter for titles....
