Hmm.  Is this to be used on regular enumerations when one has > 1
column per page?  I put this into some of my exams at various points in
these nested, multi-columned environments (M/C answers on the exams),
and saw no change in anything.

Caveat: I'm no LaTeX guru, but at the other end of the spectrum.  I
don't even know what it _should_ do.
