Really? I'd have to disagree with that. I certainly do, and the paper I 
work for also tries to minimise them. Having to go to the top of the 
next column / to the next page / to the spill page to read that last 
darn word of the paragraph is very annoying.

Well, not automatically. There's a lot to do on the text engine and some 
of the in-progress work will hopefully make it easier to address that. 
Once the current "great breakage" required to get the file format in 
place is done, perhaps it'll be possible to start merging some of that 
text engine work...
