Nobody?

Hans, could you confirm that it is not possible to use
before/after/inbetween together with the horizontal key? If so,
consider it being a feature request (I of course have no idea if it is
possible or not...) :)

I'm running closer to the dead line of this document, so I might end
up using another approach this time...
