DESCRIPTION
Authors using LaTeX to typeset books with significant margin
material often run into the problem of long notes running off the
bottom of the page. A typical workaround is to insert \vshift
commands by hand, but this is a tedious process that is invalidated
when pagination changes. Another workaround is memoir's \sidebar
function, but this can be unsatisfying for short textual notes, and
standard marginpars cannot be mixed with sidebars. This package
implements a solution to make marginpars "just work" by keeping a
list of floating inserts and arranging them intelligently in the
output routine.
