    Is there any way to implement a conditional "need"
    page break in XSL-FO and XEP?

    I know about keeps, but sometimes it is hard to code
    a stylesheet to handle all the possible combinations
    of elements and block nesting to get the right keep

    What I'm looking for is an FO instruction that says
    "if I don't have x inches of space left on the
    current page, break to the next page". This is
    like the old troff .ne instruction.

    Is this possible?
