Sorry, I failed to complete my posting:

... something like "hard-wired box", thinking of the (TeXbook) terminology for
TeX's most basic processes.

> A *manual* page break could be implemented in a straightforward way,

... closing the {compactenum} environment, issuing \\\hline
for switching to the next {longtable} row, opening a {compactenum}
environment, restoring its previous counter value ...

HTH a little more -- Uwe.
