Yes it is. One easy trick is to override sum:start and sum:stop
macros, which are defined by us.tmac to format a summary. Like this:

.de sum:star
.       PP
.de sum:stop

And the formatting of the Sx-macros will be the same as the XT macro.
Attached is an example.

Well done! I think this makes utmac the only macro set which can place a toc at the beginning, doing all the required handling internally without tooling and supplemental makefiles / bash-scripts to re-arrange PDFs or Postscript pages.

Best, Johann
