```Hi all.

In plain TeX, I have the following problem:

I have the following alignment:

\halign to \hsize{%
\vtop{\parindent=0pt\hsize=105mm\hangindent 0em\strut#\hfill\strut}%
\tabskip=0cm plus20cm minus20cm&\hfil#\tabskip=0pt\cr
bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla &bnbnbnbnb\cr}

\bye

Now, I want that, when the first argument is very long and continues over a
second line, the second argument is put on the second line as well (in the
above example it is put on the first line, instead).
