Have a look in the code in dbcompon.dsl, I think. In the section handling
sections, you have to do something like:

   (make simple-page-sequence
     page-number-restart?: #f
     (make paragraph
	break-before: page
       (literal "\no-break-space")))

However, you need %two-page% to work, and I found that I had to hack
JadeTex to get that to work ...

Now, all I need is to find out why that \hbox to ... in the JadeTex
definition of insertRule is inserting fixed space before the rule!
