Sorry, but I've got to ask again.  With LaTeX (which I know better), if I want 
to customize, say, the report document class, I make a new class file which 
first loads the original class, inheriting everything from it.  I then go on 
redefining just those things I need to change.

But with Lout it seems to me that it's common practice to make a copy of the 
entire original file and change it.  That right?

Apropos of common practice:  Has anybody already done some larger style 
customization of a document type?  Apart from the PDF thing I'd like to port my 
LaTeX report style to Lout (see 
http://www.linguistik.uni-erlangen.de/~mxp/Magister/ma_report_5.pdf for an 
example).  (Incidentally, it somehow happened to become the standard style at 
our site, so, if I succeeded with the port, I could easily recommend everybody 
here to use Lout.)
