The house style for setting exam papers here is two-sided with the  
percentages for parts of a question in the right-hand margin.  I've  
been able to achieve this using LaTeX2e with \marginpar and judicious  
manual insertion of \reversemarginpar incantations on recto pages --  
but it's hardly an elegant solution.  So I was wondering if there is  
a way of turning off the normally desirable behaviour of \marginpar  
placing the marginal material in the outside margin in two-sided mode?
