\def\spac_hanging_finish

    \ifdim\ht\nextbox>\strutht
      \setbox\nextbox\tbox{\box\nextbox}%

      \getboxheight\scratchdimen\of\box\nextbox
      \getnoflines\scratchdimen
      \hangafter-\noflines
    \fi
    \ht\nextbox\strutht
    \dp\nextbox\strutdp
    \scratchwidth\dimexpr\wd\nextbox+\scratchdistance\relax
    \ifx\m_spac_hanging_location\v!right
      \hangindent\ifconditional\displaylefttoright-\fi\scratchwidth
      \rlap{\hskip\dimexpr\hsize-\wd\nextbox\relax\box\nextbox}%
    \else
      \hangindent\ifconditional\displaylefttoright\else-\fi\scratchwidth
      \llap{\box\nextbox\hskip\scratchdistance}%
    \fi
    \ignorespaces}

(maybe the content of the hang blob will becoem l2r)
