I don't know what to do here. :) Should we remove that sentence
or replace it with something like "Don't break if it's not
necessary to fit content within the fragmentainer"? I think we
don't have that sentence for line breaking, and it's kindof
obvious, so I don't mind not putting it in... but what would
*you* like to see there?
