Argh! I really hate those ugly hacks that Sphinx do for LaTeX output...

Btw, I remember I had to touch on a TeXLive style in order to workaround
the memory size when testing LaTeX output for some book, but it ended by
causing some other issues.

I'm staring to think that we should just redefine the default for ::
to be "none", and use the "C" handling **only** when explicitly
requested.

I remember that Jon did such suggestion sometime ago.

If we change it to "none", it will still spend lots of memory for
verbatim?


Cheers,
Mauro
