I thought this is obvious.

Ok.

I missed that because I always have goal-column -> 0.

I don't know.  That's why the last sentences in my message were
questions.

But are you sure that `vertical-motion' does not hit that limitation?
For example, AFAIK `vertical-motion' stops at the end of a visual line
if the first arg is a cons cell with COLS larger than available cols in
the line.  How does that work when that line is not displayed somewhere?


Michael.
