I don't think this can be done terribly easily with the existing table class; a 
derived class will be needed, but whether that's from the Table or some element 
class included in the rendered rows is hard to say.

Logically if you know the height of the extra information then it seems 
reasonable to add something in the split method ie when the table splits some 
ectra information can be detected and arrangements made to put that into a 
specific location.
