Cliff, I do really like the "look and feel" of this example!
It looks pretty and it seems to work.

I presume the above steps (because there are so many) include
the processing for the embedded graphviz commands used to
generate the finite-state diagram? If so, very nice.

What does the actual pamphlet source file look like? Specifically,
how are chunks delimited? Can you give us a link to the source
.pamphlet file?

Ah. By "generating this one by hand" do you mean that this is
not (yet) generated by some operation equivalent to 'noweave'?
So you do not (yet) have the source that would produce the above
result? Or are you just talking about the "Included in ..."?

How much work remains to be done to do this autogeneration?
(autogeneration == noweave?)
