[plt-dev] scribble styles

Right now, it's possible to customize the latex environment associated
with tables, itemizations, and blockquotes.  But it's not possible to
put arbitrary other scribble code inside a particular latex
environment.  For example, I'd like to write something like this:

@make-paragraph[#:style "figure"]{
  ... stuff goes here ...

But this will produce

\figure{... stuff goes here ...}

which is not the desired result.

It's even worse if you want 'verbatim', which can't be abstracted into
a LaTeX macro.  It would be nice if there were a way to create a
paragraph that was styled by an environment instead of a macro.
