Is there currently a way to selectively enable truncation on certain

Looking at xdisp.c, it looks like there's no elisp solution to setting
line_wrap == TRUNCATION on a per-line basis, and even if there was, it
looks like more of the display algorithm would need reworking to
support it.

Maybe you could set the display text property on each line (starting
just before the right margin), to emulate truncate-lines.

If that works, you might be able to set the property via font-lock.
