#160: LaTeX output improvements
Reporter:  mitar        |       Owner:       
    Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new  
Priority:  major        |   Milestone:  2.8.0
 Version:  2.8.0        |    Keywords:       
 I tried to use LaTeX output and it seems as a good step forward. But there
 are still some rough edges. Here are some suggestions:

  * decouple main tex file with one more include so that it is possible to
 include whole package into another tex file, together with prologue, so
 one file with prologue and list of all sub-modules, and another which
 wraps it up and creates full document
  * allow to specify page width, currently even if I use landscape page
 orientation and wider page types and module exports are still wrapped at
 original (internal) page width
  * using `article` class does not seem to work without errors, together
 with that it would be useful to be able to disable empty pages
  * wrapping of function types into multiple lines is strange and consumes
 too much lines, wouldn't it be better that types are normally wrapped at
 the end of the line and not that it is tried to wrap them at the beginning
 (thus using only one type per line until the rest comes into whole line)
  * the same goes for export list, sometimes it just wraps into multiple,
 multiple lines, maybe changing this into normal tabular format (everything
 after `::` is just a tabular cell) will also remove requirement to hard-
 code page width (suggestion above), so that whole text positioning would
 be done by LaTeX and not preprocessed (this is especially important when
 you want to include LaTeX output into some other document, like appendix
 for example)
  * support for same style as lhs2TeX (using special characters to
 represent '::', '->' and others)
