Pass :-).  By the way, regarding your earlier "idea for finding good
page breaks", \vskip with the same glue does exactly what you want.
Suppose that each \vskip is of the form

	\vskip 2\baselineskip plus 1\baselineskip minus 1\baselineskip

then on each page, each will contribute at most [*] 3 \baselineskip
and at least 1 \baselineskip, all will contribute exactly the same
amount, but the amount contributed on page $n$ will be independent
of the amount contributed on page $m$.

[*] Actually it can contribute more, /in extremis/.
