The new line breaking code is entirely based on Donald Knuth's boxes,
glue and penalties. It should be possible to modify the algorithm such
that it does the above. Each box has access to the text that it
contains, and it has pointers to the line endings of the preceding
lines. That would be an interesting exercise. But it is entirely out
of the scope of regular FOP.
