I would like to use a string of length window-width in a display overlay
together with word-wrap and a non-nil wrap-prefix.  Currently this
results in a following empty line with indentation, which is rather
disconcerting.  But after removing `&& (IT)->line_wrap != WORD_WRAP'
from the definition of IT_OVERFLOW_NEWLINE_INTO_FRINGE and rebuilding
Emacs, the empty indented line is gone and I have just what I want.  I
haven't yet seen anything confusing.  So I too would be very interested
to know if there are known or suspected problems with allowing non-nil
overflow-newline-into-fringe with word-wrap.  If it's not clear there
are any, could we allow it and then see if anyone screams bloody murder?
