- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
The goal of the savetrees package is to pack as much
text as possible onto each page of a LaTeX document.
Admittedly, this makes the document far less
attractive.  Nevertheless, savetrees is a simple way to
save paper when printing draft copies of a document.
It can also be useful when trying to meet a tight
page-length requirement for a conference or journal
