but .. that one is then still on the same page; in fact, you should 
check for realpage being changed then

prevgraf is still ok after a 7 line paragraph but ... when you cross a 
page, and have say 4 lines moved to the next one, then a 7 line 
hangafter would be wrong (you can check if a par is on the same page)

with callbacks after breaking in lines you still don't know ...
