    initial v1  
    99Two side notes:

    11 As I'm testing this feature now, I face other buggy behavior as well. There's nothing concrete I could reproduce and report at this moment, but I've faced a line getting wrapped much sooner than desired; also a complete line getting from the display, as part of a bigger display corruption where each line got fixed as soon as the cursor entered it.

    1313If this feature has been broken for 5-6 years without anyone reporting it, it's pretty much a sign that hardly anyone wishes to have this mode. Instead of fixing it, removing it for good is another possibility to consider. I mean, OP would sure be disappointed by this resolution, but from the project's maintenance point of view it might make sense. Note: I'm not saying this is what the project should do, I'm just saying it might be a reasonable step to consider. (Do popular text editors, e.g. vim and emacs have such a mode?)
