Huh. I didn't realize the captions triggered something than just using
[[./path/to/image]] with attr_latex options passed. I just duplicated
the same section and removed all captions as well as placement=[H]
options and they exported right where I would have wanted them. That's
interesting -- learned something new!

I'll definitely take a look at that. I may also just use descriptive
intros prior to each picture, as that would do the same as a caption,
I suppose. It's just weird to me that sometimes the floats don't drop
until a later section, in which case I think that's definitely *too*
late. Sure, if they dump at the end of Section 1.1, fine -- that's
where they are discussed. But now they're showing up in 1.2?
