In order to avoid overstretched inter-paragraph-glue I would like to use footmisc with the bottom option. However it interferes with my footnote setup. See the following example:

\documentclass{memoir}
%\usepackage[bottom]{footmisc}
\setlength{\footmarkwidth}{\leftmargin}
\setlength{\footmarksep}{0em}
\footmarkstyle{#1\hfill}
\begin{document}
Some text \footnote{Here I have a footnote that's long enough to break 
over a line, just a little bit longer still.}
\end{document}

This is how my footnotes are supposed to look like:

Without footmisc

This is how they look after loading footmisc:

I understand that footmisc also has a hang option which formats footnotes roughly as in the first example, however I'd prefer to use memoir's footnotes and use footmisc just to keep all the extra vertical whitespace between footnotes and running text. How do I stop footmisc from interfering with anything else than that? Or is there a better way of achieving the same thing?

    As soon as you use footmisc you overwrite the memoir features (AFAIR), so you cannot use both. Have you read the memoir manual. The bottom feature from footmisc has recently been added to memoir, see \feetatbottom – daleif Jul 27 '15 at 15:15
  • @daleif I had not seen that yet. So the default in a twoside document with memoir is \flushbottom, but \feetatbottom is to be used together with \raggedbottom, so I would have to switch to that first, and \feetatbottom would then avoid \raggedbottom's inconsistent text block size problem? – muk.li Jul 27 '15 at 15:39

    What do you mean by inconsistent text block size? They do not have the same size because they are not fully filled in which is what you allow when you use ragged bottom. Feet at bottom can be used when your document does not use flush bottom. – daleif Jul 27 '15 at 15:54
