(Including all admonitions in Subject field to help others reporting
the bug.)

Admonitions such as

    .. WARNING:: I'm stoned right now!

where they probably should render as

                        I'm stoned right now!

By grovelling through rst2newlatex's header tex file, I discovered a
basic workaround by adding --stylesheet=style.tex, where style.tex is
