Yes, column sets would be better.

When I try ...

   \dorecurse{10}{\input tufte\footnote{\input ward \relax}}

at the bottom of page 1 there is a lot of white space before the  
footnote text of footnote 1-4 (the footnotemarkers 1 to 4 come up the  
next page).
So in this example it doesn't seem to be possible to keep footnote  
markers and text at the same page:

Wouldn't it be better in this case to fill page 1 also with the  
footnote text of the following footnotes?
In this way the pages would look much better.

Is there a way (penalty?) to express how *urgent* footnote markers  
and text need to be forced to the same page?
Or - in other words - to loosen the connection?
