Under columnsets (at least in mkii), but not under mixedcolumns (mkiv), \testcolumn[N] causes a column break if there are not at least (or more than?) N lines of space remaining in the current column.

This can be used to help avoid orphans (clubs) at the bottom of columns, by making sure there is room for a couple of lines before starting a new heading or paragraph.
