Please do. I, or you, could see if the marg_ostreambuf code could
be modified to do what you want.

I should look at the Garcia code, meanwhile...

I've created files/col_io/pipe.cpp with output in pipe.exe.output. It
demonstrates that two marg_ostreams can be composed. The 1st one
changes the margin and at some time puts "xxx" in that margin. The 2nd
just puts "yyy" in the margin.
