Until now, it's been a standalone document, but perhaps that
should change.  Only after the new unified doc process, unified
macros, etc, though.  So just leave it as-is for now.  :)

In most doc sections, we'd move tweaking-type stuff (and I think
that \overrideBeamSettings would qualify) into snippets.

HOWEVER, certain NR sections go into more detail... my traditional
example of this is the page about changing automatic beam
settings.  So I definitely think it's ok to have this inline here.
