Reledmac: paragraph footnotes in two columns

I am typesetting a document using the memoir package and reledmac package. I am trying to get the footnotes in a paragraph block, but typeset in two columns (the footnotes, not the main text). The paragraph block, I got using Xarrangement[A]{paragraph} and the two columns with Xarrangement[A]{twocol}. But it seems is not possible to get both parameters at the same time. Am I wrong?

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{reledmac}
\Xarrangement[A]{paragraph}
%\Xarrangement[A]{twocol}

\begin{document}
\beginnumbering
\pstart
I am happy : I saw my friend \edtext{Smith}{\Afootnote{Jones C, D.}}
on Tuesday.
I am happy : I saw my friend \edtext{Smith}{\Afootnote{Jones C, D.}}

I would like to have the effect of the two macros at the same time

• Could you add some working code (mwe)? – Bobyandbob Jun 9 '17 at 23:42

• Not so easy. But the idea is here. You have to use \parafootfmt, to use twocolfootsetup and to make a mixt between twocolfootgroup and parafootgroup. – Maïeul Jun 10 '17 at 15:39
• In any case, I will encourage you to read the paragraphe XII.5 and XII.6 of the handbook. You may also have a good knew of TeX \insert mechanism. – Maïeul Jun 10 '17 at 15:41
• If you want to do that, I will ask you to make a fork of reledmac github repository, and then a pull request. The new arrangment should be called Xarrangement[A]{twocolpara} or something like that. I prefer you propose I pull request instead of making you own version of reledmac/reledpar. – Maïeul Jun 10 '17 at 15:43
