That's a good approach to the problem.  But with LaTeX, it's even
easier.  You write this;

and that, according to Heidegger, every metaphysical though is
ontological or it is nothing at all.''\footnote{Holzwege, p.\ 206}

And then LaTeX will create a footnote for you and number it and all
that stuff.  Note that, for completeness, I've also included the
strange backslash after the p.' which tells LaTeX that this dot is
not a sentence-end period.  There are a couple of commands like this
that you need to learn, but there is a 20 page document that explains
about these things and you can read that in half an hour or so.

As another example, you write

\section{Introduction}
\label{sec:intro}

...some text...

And then elsewhere you can refer to this section, like so:

As we already mentioned in section \ref{sec:intro}, ...

You can see that LaTeX does those things which you wanted to write
Lisp for.  So why bother writing Lisp!
