I am trying to work with Owl's tcb package...however I need to spend some time coming up
with a tcb aware shadow... as far as I can tell it is supported partially in some of their
own shadow sources but I am having troubles rejigging the patches...hopefully I will get
some time tonight to work on it.  Once I come up with that patch I can write something
closer to a full blown hint that people can test...sorry for the premature patch posting.
