I looked at it, but I can't say I understand which specific problems
you refer to.  Assuming that the Emacs buffer has the text layed out
as you want it on the screen, plus whatever text properties that are
necessary to preserve the style information, what specifically would
cause Emacs to fail to display this as you want?

Why should we even consider such replacement if we are not yet sure
that the spaces-and-newline model will fail to do the job?
