There are tricks to print the depth when compiling the code. Al that  
is needed then is parsing a separate file, or the log file. (You  
actually have some of the LaTeX based trickery in a document that I  
send you earlier. So no: you cannot extract it from the pdf, but you  
can obtain that info from a TeX run.

To let everyone join in: I've put an archive with a very preliminary  
verion of a design document online at http://www.nat.vu.nl/~sneep/tex/ 
snippet.zip Compilation instructions are in the package. Further  
suggestions are welcome.
