On a new topic: d'you know if it is possible to have a
page-break-spanning box?

I have a definition, let's call it @Get, that reads in lines from
external files via @Pipe. So I have this kind of thing:

@LD @Box @Get{....}

But sometimes this is too big for the page & lout scales; what I'd
really like is for the box to span the page break.

I've also tried

@LD @Tbl address@hidden A} { @Rowa address@hidden

but tables won't break inside a row.

I've got a workaround but it isn't as convenient as a
page-break-spanning box would be.
