I wonder whether it would be possible to implement a feature that you
mentioned in the past.

In order to avoid widow and orphan lines, you mentioned that it would be
possible to automatically adapt the interline space for the page, so
that it may have one more line to avoid orphans (when interline space is
decreased) or it may move a line to the next page to avoid widows
(increasing the interline space in the present page).

Would it be possible to add this feature to ConTeXt?

I have another feature request for notes, but I would like to know
whether the feature to avoid widow and orphan lines can be implemented
in ConTeXt.

Many thanks for your help,
