don't hesitate to send patches if you want to clean up and better
document the code. I've recently wondered if it made sense to split

VerticalBreakingAlgorithm (base class and used by static-content and
block-container) and a PageBreakingAlgorithm (which adds footnote and
before-float functionality). That may make the code clearer.
