Hi Hans,

Personally, I find the names used sub-optimal!

I would think something like conditionalbreak or conditionalpagebreak
would be better and verbose.

Other names could be ifpagelength, ifpagelengthstill, leftonpage, or something
similar. 

I assume you have implemented checkpage as an added layer on top
of testpage! 

At least the test is if X lines left on page or still fit on page!

I also have a question. Are the commands setuppagechecker sothat 

\definepagechecker[whatever]

\setuppagechecker[whatever]
 [lines=35,
  voffset=10pt,
  before={\vfill\wordright{(see next page)}\par},
  after=\noindentation]

and also

\checkpage [lines=35,
  voffset=10pt,
  before={\vfill\wordright{(see next page)}\par},
  after=\noindentation]

Question: what is the voffset used for? Line height? If so then a better name for this
would be nice, too!

regards
	Keith.
