Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] dynamic chunk.section.depth

Hi Tim,
I messed about with something related a couple of years ago.
What I implemented was a negative number on the chunk.section.depth to say
chunk to within that "section height" of the node tree leaves.
I think there was a little bit of freedom because you could 
add the odd "simplesect" leaf, which were terminal non-chunking nodes anyway.
Of course you need to pay very close attention to your document structure
if you tried this - I was transforming a highly structured ontology, so 
it worked adequately for me.

I think calculating the number of section children was a bit intensive though,
specially for TOC generation. The logic was embedded in the tabular-toc
contrib module, somewhere ...
