Earlier, I have used exactly this, and it works very well. Note that
\begin and \end need to be \protect'ed:


I don't know what happens if there's an odd number of sections, or
some of the section titles take up more than one line. It may be
necessary to do other \addtocontents stuff to make it Just Right(tm).
