I want to typeset an "excurses" description that is marked with a leftframe. 
The problem is that it spans about multiple pages and has footnotes.

Here is an MWE:
%% -> mwe-framedtext.pdf
	toffset=0mm,  % there is an offset anyways

%% -> mwe-textbackground.pdf
% \definetextbackground[excursusbg] [
% 	location=text,
% 	background=color,
% 	backgroundcolor=lightblue,
% 	frame=on,
% 	loffset=10cm,  % seems to have no impact
% ]

	text={Excursus:\ },


\input ward

\startexcursus[title={A Knuth extract}]

\input knuth


\input ward

\startexcursus[title={A much longer Knuth extract}]

\input knuth
Sometimes, sentences have footnotes\footnote{Some footnote}.

\input knuth
\input knuth


See the attached PDFs for the different results.

In principal, I would like the excurses typesetted like to solution with 
\defineframedtext. However, this does not work with pagebreaks.
Additionally, the leftframe is too long (it begins above the "Excursus" text). 
I tried toffset to let the leftframe begin exactly at the "Excurses" text 
without success.

The solution with \textbackground looks somewhat promising. It supports 
pagebreaks, but draws above footnotes and prints a small rectangle at the end 
of the excursus. I also didn't found a way to specify a leftframe only.
Also, loffset seems to have no effect, here.

Do I use the false environments? Do you know a better solution?
