Hm, this may be conceptually simpler but at least for me not simpler to
implement, if I understand what you're suggesting, namely, that the
filler character should be provided by a defcustom, which is defined in
xdisp.c; is that right?  Before I try to do that, is the following
consistent with what you're suggesting (aside from lack the
configurability)?  If not, could you be more specific?
