    Is there an easy method of dynamically determining the distance from the
    edge of the page to the start of hard-left text for a content block on any
    given page?

    I think the calculation would include page.margin-left and
    region-body.margin-left. I don't think region-start would be needed, as
    region-body needs to set a left margin that doesn't overwrite it. One
    might need to include block.margin-left, block.border, and block.padding
    for the current content block.

    Alternatively, simply knowing whether my template was currently putting
    content on a left or right page would go a long, long way to helping me
    achieve the layout I desire.

    Any hints would be greatly appreciated. The solution can be XEP-specific.
