The current algorithm already does something along these lines. It's
just that it has to know the width of the window first.

If the text doesn't fit, we have to truncate anyway. But if we were
able to adjust rigid text (that is, truncate-lines equals t text) during
redisplay we'd be able to selectively display more important parts of a
text when the window is narrow and the entire text when the window is
wide. This would also allow to implement line numbers for rigid text.
