Not sure what you are saying: do you see some problem in the above
code?  If so, where do you see a potential problem.

If that's the problem, I see no good solutions here, because
scroll-conservatively > 100 explicitly requests to position point as
close to the window edge as possible, and the alternating lines of
different height in the recipe of this bug report force us to stop one
line earlier every other scroll.  Am I missing something?

Not sure how to interpret what you say here.  If point is beyond
MATRIX_ROW_END_CHARPOS of a row, it means point is not in this row,
because MATRIX_ROW_END_CHARPOS gives the buffer position of the first
character in the next row.  There are no coordinates, pixel or
otherwise, involved here.

Is this a suggested patch?  If so, how can it fix the issue?  When a
line is taller than the canonical height, positioning point on it
might enter the scroll-margin, and we still need to back up, don't we?
IOW, the above code still move "by lines", and will "stutter" if lines
are intermittently of different height.  What possible solution could
we come up with in such situations?  It seems to me that the user gets
what they asked for.
