Huh?!? How can you call this satisfactory? It has virtually *all* horrible
linebreaking problems I 
can think of:

- It creates FAR too many vobs, because each word is a vob...
- ...and each space is a vob, too, if you don't want to introduce extra
complexity with these.
- There is no way to specify that a break should not be between two vobs,
thus breaking at 
arbitrary positions inside vobs (a mistake we've made already!).

What is this intended to solve?
