1400 has not been applied.

Nix will be fine, but thank you for asking.

David has been doing an excellent job, actually, since, as of right now,
the only patch that has been applied, that is still in the list is 1473
and that one you have only /very/ recently announced applied.

The only other patch that should, perhaps, be removed is 1401, which is
an ugly hack compared to 1439.

The reason is that it was only after creating 1401 that I understood how
the preamble generation worked and so I was able to create a command
called "\tmfloat" with 5 arguments, which, above and beyond 1401,
incorporates all float functionality TeXmacs offers, including
restricting the caption to within ~ 1in of the width of the contents of
the float, as opposed to the width of the line.

IOW, before this patch, /all/ TeXmacs floats were translated to LaTeX as
"big" floats.  Now, a distinction is made between "big" and "small"
floats, just as it is made in TeXmacs.  Furthermore, this distinction is
apparent from the way \tmfloat gets called:


However, I will have to revise 1400 and 1439, because we now have a
better way of specifying required packages, and the constructs
introduced in both of these patches require new LaTeX packages.  I
should have an update within 24 hrs of this email.

BTW:  Great job on the over/underbrace, Joris ! I realize the whole font
thing needs cleaning up, but nonetheless :o)
