Is there a package that provides memoir's sidebar functionality for the standard book class? The key features being better utilizing the margin area (by floating to top: but it would be nice if this were optional), and crossing page boundaries, and if necessary running multiple pages.

Note: sidenotes doesn't seem to provide these features unless I missed something.

    Two suggestions, neither of which you might like. 1) extract the sidebar functionality from memoir's code, make it in to a package, with appropriate acknowledgements, and submit it to CTAN, or 2) use memoir instead of book as memoir does all that book does and more. – Peter Wilson Sep 30 '17 at 18:16
  • @PeterWilson Actually, I ended up using memoir and make some customizations. I really like it a lot. Nevertheless, if one day someone more versed than I am in programming tex/latex can strip those relevant parts and make it a package, I do think that would be useful to someone. – balcinus Sep 30 '17 at 18:23
