[texhax] filling all the way down

Hello all:

I want to create a single long paragraph of shrinking font sizes all the way down to the illegible.  (It's a spoof of the fine print on contracts and copyright notices.)  I can shrink the font in the middle of a paragraph, but I can't shrink the \baselineskip, and if I arrange it as consecutive paragraphs run together, the last line of each paragraph isn't filled.

I thought I remembered an example of this somewhere in my TeX library, but my hunting hasn't turned it up yet.

How can I:

  - Fill the last line of a paragraph (or at least dictate that TeX make a stab at doing so), or
  - Change the \baselineskip while a paragraph is underway.

Is either of these possible, or can someone suggest a third way to do this?

Many thanks,
