Ok, it is done.

But maybe the "right" to do is to add a special value to the
display-fill-column-indicator var in order to avoid an extra variable
only for this.

Right now it is only t||nil, we can set a value like 'visual right?.

I have a design question related to continuation lines.

Right now the indicator is show in all the lines including the
continuation lines.

Conceptually this is not right because a wrapped line is actually a line
that already crossed the fill-column, so the question is if I should add
an extra if to not print the indicator in continuation lines.

That's interesting. Showing a continous vertical line is aesthetically
pleasing even when it does not make sense otherwise, but a gap on that
vertical line also is useful because it makes the continuation lines

I guess the answer here, as often in Emacs, is "make it configurable"
