and how does one do this in mkiv now?


\def\StopCouple {\SwitchToNormal \SynchronizeLeftAndRight \FlushLeftAndRight} 
\def\Original {\SwitchToNormal\SynchronizeLeftAndRight\SwitchToLeft} 

Are you sleeping, brother John?

Bruder Jakob, schläfst du noch?

This is not really a bug. Streams in mkii are an experiment and will not be 
developed further (is a module after all). In mkiv there will be a different 
mechanism. There is some experimental code ... copied from the source:


\setuplayout[grid=yes] \showgrid


\input tufte


Wat doen we hier?


Are you sleeping, brother John?\footnote{xxx}

\dorecurse{4}{x \footnote{note \recurselevel}\input tufte \par 


Bruder Jakob, schläfst du noch?\footnote{yyy}

\dorecurse{4}{x \footnote{note \recurselevel}\input ward \par \pushoutputstream}



Vader Jacob, slaap je nog?\footnote{zzz}

\input tufte


\page \flushoutputstream[en] \input knuth
\page \flushoutputstream[de] \input knuth
\page \flushoutputstream[nl] \input knuth
