Line spacing is really only useful for displaying text (or editing
text in a Word Processor mode).  

Such modes are unlikely to use continued lines, so I think it is quite
sufficient functionality for the intended usage.

Besides, it would be quite difficult to implement this "correctly" so
it can go back and modify the line spacing of display rows with
continued lines.
