I'm very uncertain what he is trying to do...
Is the idea to fill the 3-column space with emptiness, then append new 
content so that is always at the very end of the last column?

Some scripts were written to try to resize frames to fit text, involving 
a loop which tests for overflow. I can somewhat imagine a script that 
would retest for overflow while varying empty lines.
This seems an odd request.
