This way, though, I think, space between signs is shrinkable. This leads
(sorry) to unaligned leaders. In fact, @Leaders is defined in @ContentsItem

  def @Leaders { @ContentsLeader &@ContentsLeaderGap @Leaders }

being @ContentsLeader:

    named @ContentsLeader {  ..  } # leader symbol in contents

and @ContentsLeaderGap:

    named @ContentsLeaderGap {  4s  @OrIfPlain 2s } # gap between leaders

I was never able, though, to get the same behaviour as in LaTeX \dotfill.
