Hey, \relax! I said it, because it doesn't work in general because of the
dvips line breaking mechanism that is in effect when writing headers with

See below. Again, please don't (!) distribute this or use it in any actual
applications. I won't provide help when it fails! Again, the package is just
a proof-of-concept at the moment and even if dvips line breaking in
\special{! could be switched off, there are plenty of things to be sorted
out in the package at the moment, like catcodes etc. I have done that
already here, but didn't include that in the package anymore as I got to
understand that dvips would be a problem anyway for the package. You will
see some strange things when looking at the code. Again, that has been
sorted out, but I didn't do the effort of putting that in the package.


I'll remove it there in a day from now.
