No idea, but, in any case, this is not /my/ method. If you want, I  
will see what happens when I change a couple of include into input.

Yes, so I had noticed, but I hadn't tried it with input (I was under  
the apparently wrong impression that input was a TeX primitive and I  
wasn't going to mess around with that. However, I have yet to do my  
homework and learn what the difference really is.)
