No love for textboxes? Looking for tutorials

I recently found a new love in Blender: Textboxes! Because of how they let me spread texts out automatically, I am doing some experiments with DTP (desktop publishing) in Blender. But there are next to no tutorials on textboxes out there, and the Python stuff seems really thin!

My current issue is how to tell via scripting how many textboxes a text needs, i.e. when has all the text been put into boxes. But overall, any tutorials (coding or not) beyond the absolute basics are welcome! If this works, I may do some myself, on using Blender for creating comics and illustrated books!
