That's not "auto-multicol", it's just "multicol".  It's a standard
usage of the feature; just set 'height' and 'column-width' and you'll
get the desired behavior.  What's under discussion here is the
automatic activation of multicol in certain (rare) circumstances to
combat unintentional bad layout.

That's something entirely different, and unrelated to the discussion at hand.
