I was trying to explain why that comment might be of only historical
interest, since it describes code that we don't use.

I don't think it does.  And I'm not sure it should.

That's what your changes are about, I think.

I understand, but I don't see how it is related to set-default-font.

Do we really want to allow resizing that causes this wrap, when what
the user wants is to fit frame size to buffer?
