Can we focus on getting the module/package structure and a basic
algorithm first? It's fine to design the structure for easy
extensibility with other algorithms, but implementing Knuth's
algorithm seems hopelessly out of scope. Even Emacs' fill-paragraph
is too fancy-schmancy for my taste (for inclusion as a Python standard
library). Simply breaking lines at a certain limit is all that's
