Reflow branch landed

After almost exactly two years of working on it, David Baron landed the reflow branch last night. In addition to fixing numerous bugs (including all remaining Acid2 issues) and improving layout peformance some, the changes significantly simplify, the table column balancing code and block reflow. The landing lays the groundwork for implementing inline-block and inline-table display values, as well as some further optimization work.

I'm amazed at David's patience with this project over the last two years, in the face of what must have been quite nasty merge conflicts on numerous occasions, and I'm glad he stuck with it!
