Callout style + error

I was playing with the look and feel of callout sections a few weeks
back. Not only don't we have the fedora-style images, but I noticed
that if you are showing command blocks that have cut'n'paste style code,
the callout numbers interfere with your cut'n'paste.
I had a large enough code block that I wanted to use callout's to break
it down and explain various parts ... it just killed the
cut'n'pastability once added.
P.S. I actually hadn't realized that docbook-style-dsssl provided stock
callout images until I was about to launch this email:
$ ls /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-*/images/callouts/
