Ahem - am I allowed to say that


is not a very tasteful thing to put in a document?  It would be easy
to add, but do we really want it?

To get a double rule you could put this in your mydefs file:

    def @DoubleFullWidthRule

To get a line of + signs or whatever you could put this in your
mydefs file:

    def @LineOf right x
       x & @LineOf x

It's similar to the @Leaders symbol used in tables of contents.  I
haven't tested either of these definitions but they are straightforward.
