No rush at all, this can wait for sure. Just wanted to report this problem.
Thanks a lot (as Always¬†ūüėä),

i'm still figuring out the best way to support both the spacing model 
(which has to look ahead) and side floats (where we run into the usual 
stuff done in grouping that need to be known outside and it's that code 
that's needed for some of my collegues work) .. in fact those are the 
most complex mechanisms that at some point (aroudn end this year) i want 
to more or less freeze .. till then betas can differ (which is why 
they're betas)

i have a solution  (but esp the specific tricky side float stuff will 
only work ok in an upcoming luatex as i am not going to figure out some 
temp solution)
