If there's one thing I've learned about LaTeX it is “don't try to  
change anything.”  Or maybe “change things at your peril (you will  

But if you want to add \begin{sect}{} to the symbols list have a look  
at the Symbol List preference item.  You add a regex clause to the  
symbolTransformation variable to match that form.  One drawback will  
be that there's no way to figure out the depth of the current  
section...  Something like the following should work:

		s/^\begin{sect\*}?(?:\[[^]]*\])?\{(.+)\}/  $1/; # \begin{sect}

As for modifying the Show Outline command... I don't think a simple  
modification will suffice as it is based on the same regular  
expressions that the Symbol List is.  You'd have to rewrite the whole  
thing maintaining a stack to remember how deep you are...
