Actually, "width=288pt, textheight=432pt," gives me exactly the result
I wanted.  I'd just like to be able to set the distance between the
top of the paper and the top of the text area directly, as in
rather than what I'm currently using:
header=12pt, headerdistance=12pt, topspace=48pt, % 48 = 72 - (12+12)
Is this possible, and what is the something's name?
