Actually I had in mind precisely this hack which I have been using for
more than an year since I stumbled upon it. Thanks. It's hugely handy
with docview (with .div output it's faster).
The annoying part is that it doesn't work when there are code chunks
inside a frame. Hence the original request of partial evaluation. Being
OT it becomes OT (on topic) again ...
