Sorry I was a bit sloppy.  The origin of the hack is from LaTeX export.
I did not test it extensively for other backends.  Now I realise why it
worked for me; I always export with no toc for html and ascii.  and
LaTeX takes care of toc.

Your patch looks good, however I think the language is indeed too
academic and could be simplified and made more accesible.  It is Worg
after all :).

In fact, I'm always of the opinion, if the change is minor, or corrects
a mistake, or simplifies things, just go ahead with it.  It is a
community resource!

I won't have time to work on this any time soon (now I'm at a workshop,
review deadline next week, holiday the week after).
