    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.

Some are proposing that we split a long line at word boundaries at
display time.  This is not identical to the present method of line
continuation, but it is a kind of line continuation.

However, if we handle such line-breaking by adding newlines, there
will be no line-continuation.

    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.

I see the difficulty.

Anyway, it sounds like my text is accurate, then:

    A newline can have a @code{line-spacing} text or overlay property that
    controls the height of the display line ending with that newline.

Is anything in the text there now not accurate?
