..... at present tables will only split at a row boundary. I suppose it
would be possible to handle splitting of very long contents in cells to
make things more flexible.

How would we decide where to split though?  Row splits would normally be
preferred so when should we consider splitting the contents. How do we
treat parallel cells that don't require a split etc etc?
