bug#18530: 24.3; Emacs unable to handle very large lines

Eil I accept that emacs is way powerful than vim and other
editors. Even I am also a strong supporter of emacs.

I filed this bug because for me it was very difficult to work
with "long lines" and I don't want to use some other editor
just for this purpose.

I think if we can get over this limitation of emacs it will
make emacs a little more powerful!

Does Vim support different font sizes on the same line, inline images,
display properties, overlays, invisible text, etc.?  These features is
what makes this particular case hard; other editors don't need to
handle all that complexity.
