Why is this text inside the @example? If that's because of the desire
to have the text always follow the diagram, I don't see anything that
would prevent us from using @need instead of @group. Am I missing
In general, it's bad to have free text inside @example, since TeX
doesn't fill such text. So typesetting that is prone to unexpected
problems whenever you change the output dimensions slightly (e.g.,
with @smallbook etc.). It's best to avoid that entirely.
