If you don't mind an unbalanced spread, try going right into the primitives
Sometimes the extra line comes in without pushing the footnote down
noticeably. The page breaker can occasionally be triggered by half a
point or less, and most people won't see that. You can substitute
smaller and smaller dimensions for
\value_of_baselineskip-expressed_as_a_dimension to see just how much is
needed. It can be a real surprise.
