I don't know if the OP will be satisfied with follow-mode but often
(eg when reading Gutenberg ebooks) I would like to have a
follow-like mode that treats the text as a book.  With follow-mode
if you have a file that consists of four "pages", say A,B,C,D and
you start with the configuration

          |-----|-----|
          |     |     |
          |  A  |  B  |
          |     |     |
          |-----|-----|

if you hit "C-v" you get 

          |-----|-----|
          |     |     |
          |  B  |  C  |
          |     |     |
          |-----|-----|

I would like to get 

          |-----|-----|
          |     |     |
          |  C  |  D  |
          |     |     |
          |-----|-----|

instead.  Does such a mode exist?

Thanks in advance,
Nikos
