Although I would dearly like to use textures, they don't work with the
tools I use. Would it be possible to add a --notextures command line
option so that even if, for example, I louted the user guide, so long as
I used this option I'd just get white background rather than textures?
Of course I can simply not use textures in my documents and I can hand
fix the user guide; but where I'm particularly concerned is for using
@Illustration to generate diagrams that I later include in other lout
