I think you've misunderstood what I mean by "balanced columns". I don't
mean columns of equal width, but columns in which the composed text is
of equal depth across the columns, e.g.:

     xxxxxxxxxxx      xxxxxxxxxx     xxxxxxxxxx
     xxxxxxxxxxx      xxxxxxxxxx     


     xxxxxxxxxxx      xxxxxxxxxx
