(require("SectionObserver"))(props) → {SectionObserver}

...
Observe intersection changes with the viewport for one or more elements. This is intended to be used with the headings in the content so that the corresponding section(s) in the table of contents can be "activated" (e.g. bolded). When sectionObserver notices a new intersection change, the `props.onIntersection` callback will be fired with the corresponding section as a param. Because sectionObserver uses a scroll event listener (in combination with IntersectionObserver), the changes are throttled to a default maximum rate of 200ms so that the main thread is not excessively blocked. IntersectionObserver is used to asynchronously calculate the positions of the observed tags off the main thread and in a manner that does not cause expensive forced synchronous layouts.
