%D A bit more extensive variant of a prototype posted by Wolfgang to the
%D development list. Instead of dealing with a few leader types it makes
%D sense to support them all as well as simple rule fillers. Eventually we
%D can also use in for the mathfillers. We distinguish between alternatives
%D and with them methods, and a checker is provided for use in applying
%D e.g.\ fillers in lists.
