That doesn't work when trying to figure out how to lay out a deeply
nested multi-columnar layout.  It's complicated.

And the current implementation sucks: It basically combinatorally tries
all possibilities to find the best layout.  There are probably shortcuts
that can be taken, but any I've tried makes common table-based layouts
