actually, control over writes (and such) can be made more clever (was 
discussed at some point but postponed); for instance, when toc entries 
are in a box, one might want to suppress them in a \copy; okay, this can 
be dealt with using macros, but in general a bit more control does not 
hurt (low priority stuff)
