[texhax] using larger units to determine breaks?

I know that the original TeX basically works in paragraphs and outputs in

But the more (fiction) works that I typeset, the more it seems to me that a
considerable improvement -- or at least less manual intervention -- would
likely be effected if the algorithms optimized page breaks over an entire
section or chapter.

Are there any versions of *TeX that have or will at some point have the
capability to optimize breaks over larger units than does the original TeX?


PS Maybe I'm wrong and in practice this doesn't help, but it sure seems
like it should. A lot of the tweaking I end up doing seems like it would go
away if some attempt had been made to optimize over larger units.
