Specifically, this is a "translation" of the most complex part of the
layout algorithm.  The rest of it was simple, and fantasai and I
didn't disagree on how to express it.

It's just that most-complex part that needed a two-stage rewriting;
once to make it more CSS-algo-like and untangle the dependencies but
not change the overall structure, and again to simplify it further and
make it easier to read.
