An alternative is to use txtStart (and other functions mentioned in the same help page) from the TeachingDemos package. This does the sinking, but can also include the commands as well as allow you to insert comments.  The etxt variants allow you to postprocess the whole transcript into a postscript (then pdf) file including selected graphics.
