Damn. The humor in my remark about not advertising LuaTeX here didn't go
through. I dislike email communication for this reason exactly: only half of
what you mean actually reaches the reader. Smileys have their use, after all :)

LuaTeX could indeed easily go through the box's node list and retrieve all
migrating material. But there must exist a solution in TeX, since people have
used multi-columns in TeX for decades, and I don't like this solution escaping
