It currently handles the case of a tall screen line, which could be
due to an image, an xwidget, or simply very large font.

If you want to limit it only to those cases, then perhaps the answer
is yes, but the problem with those functions is that they try to
handle many use cases that are not completely described anywhere, so
testing whether a particular change could break any of them is nigh
impossible in practice.  And the code does work for the use cases for
which it was written.  Which is why I suggested a completely new
command for the purpose under discussion.
