[texhax] wrapfig/floatflt hints

wrapfig and floatflt are great, but sometimes with > 1 figure or table,
they can get either split between two pages, overlain with text, or a huge
column of space shows up - requiring iterative compilation to get
everything to fit.  there's a lot spread out on the web about this.

to gain more control of this i am looking at,
(1) use these in the preamble
\renewcommand{\topfraction}{0.6}	% 90% of page top can be a float
\renewcommand{\bottomfraction}{0.6}	% 90% of page bottom can be a float
\renewcommand{\textfraction}{0.1}	% only 10% of page must to be text
(2) use atchange
(3) adjust the things after \begin{wrapfigure}
(4) get the Kopka book (vide infra)

... and now i'm spent.  is there actually a way to get a compile-once
figure/table placement?  i.e. maybe use the same size figures, alternate
the side that theyre placed on...  i'm waiting for my library to get the
Kopka book in, hence the hasty email.
