I knew it. It's an excellent job, actually it uses hbox rather than vbox.
And it end a paragraph to get the horizontal position with \lastbox before
the intertextpostil and then it can test whether or not the postil could fit
the rest of the line.

Anyway, in the ancient Chinese people's defense, one column is just one
page. They write things on a piece of long narrow bamboo from top to bottom
and weave them from right to left. So I still think I should use a \box255
to store one column and change the \output routine to weave them on a page.
But it's a little slow when using page arrangement so I guess I should
design a new algorithm myself to make it useful. And the intertextpostil
would use multicolumn with ConTeXt easily with no hacks.
