Actually, this is a more general issue, too: orphans and widows only work
reliably at the lowest block level and could lead to break-decisions that cause
violations at higher levels in some cases (e.g. blocks consisting of
subparagraphs --preserved linefeeds or nested blocks-- consisting of a single

Attachments to follow:
- a new, extended test case demonstrating some of the issues
- a patch for a partial fix

The fix so far, has forced me to update a few test cases (changes included in
the patch). Those changes all seemed to follow naturally from the corrected
behavior: if a block generates less than 4 lines of content, then that is a
virtual keep-together with default orphans/widows setting. This is now
reflected in the element lists, requiring some shifts in tests on element list
