To be honest, I don't really see any major changes to the Finish page
between the first import to the Wiki and today, with the sole exception
of the cleanup of ambient/emission and the reflection exponent stuff.
You sure are thinking of some other page there, right?

... and I'm speaking out loud what I think of it. I didn't gripe because
of the presence of a TOC 2 pages down the text, but because it took 2
pages of scrolling to get to those TOC, and because of the length and
content of those 2 pages.

Any way to force it to? Maybe a "__TOC__"?
Also, if a page has just 3 headings but is long enough that the reader
would wish for a TOC, then maybe that page would deserve more structuring?
