A @Form like so works reasonably well most of the time:

def @Form
  named header {}
  named footer {}
  right data
  // data
  //1rt @OneRow { footer }

However, if data is large it can push footer to the next page.  I'd
ultimately like to have a file of forms where a form can span a page
and Lout will arrange for each page to get header and footer in the
right place.  I've tried shoving footers directly into the
@PageFootNotePlace galley, for example, with no luck.

This is sort of baroque, I guess.  I may be best off breaking up the
pages in the program that generates the Lout code.  Eg. if data is a
table where 8 rows fit between the header and footer, chop up data so
only eight rows are in any @Form.
