How does this work for lines broader than the buffer?

It looks surely interesting.  But normally the readability of text
presented in lines is good when they aren't too long.

The only advantage I discern is when comparing stuff by hand
i. e. checking data presented in tabular form and your eyes have to
wander constantly from the sheet to the screen and might end up in the
wrong line.

This reminds me a bit of `global-hl-line-mode'.
