Thank you Fabien, that solves about 80% of my tasks!

I do not think though that it would work if the conditional sections are 
ontained within a hicher level section. Suppose we have "alternitve 
subsections like:

		Section for Type A data
		Section for Type B data

and I need to print 24 type A's and 12 Type B's in random order.
Would the workaround work in that case? (Just a quick answer needed.)

Or also "Optional" sections like:

		Section for say "Order.lineItem"
		Optional section for line item comments like "Out of Stock"
		Option Section for say "Promo message" e.g. "Have you tried ...

I have a feeling that removing the children wont work for these.
I am not too worried about these cases at the moment as I need to get 
the 80% done. I just raise them as other "section types" that need to be 
considered, i.e. "conditional", "alternative" and "optional".
