Nothing really heated here, but probably some communication issue. I try to 
listen to what you try to explain, but I hardly get anything about your actual 
problem and mostly critique how the solutions are not clean enough for you 
without really reasoning why this would be that way.

I’ve sent you an example of how we basically can get what Jean described 
(which involves adding some functionality to the header and footer markups 
which can be put into an include and then on line overrides (which can also be 
put into includes). You’ve then dismissed this as too much logic (when this 
actually just requires a very miniscule amount of additional functionality. 
Then when you talked about cover pages I gave you an example of a markup 
function that spreads markups vertically over the page (which can then be used 
to push stuff to the bottom).

I’m spending lots of my time trying my best to help you, and it’s really 
frustrating then to get told to focus on „what you tried to explain”, 
especially when you give core specifications like "I just want to set simple 
fields” randomly in the end. And this really takes away a lot of motivation 
for trying to help people on the mailing list.
