I think it might be useful to have distinct indicators for the two types
of wrapping, yes.  If there was such a feature, visual-line-mode (please
distinguish this from "word wrap mode", as they're not the same thing)
could use it to show indicators for non-word wrapping while suppressing
those for normal word-wrapping.  That would probably make most users

However that's mainly useful for the "very long word" wrapping case you
mention, and that's a pretty rare occurance, so it doesn't seem like a
particularly critical thing.  If someone decides to put in the time to
implement it, great; otherwise, whatever.


Quotation, n. The act of repeating erroneously the words of another. The words
erroneously repeated.
