I'd actually urge you to have a good look at window-scroll-functions
as well.  (Follow mode already uses it, but I think it could use it
for quite a lot more.)  This hook is called when Emacs concludes that
a window may need to be scrolled to bring point into view.  This is
exactly where Follow mode wants to be able to affect the decision of
the display engine, right?  I think by making a few simple
changes/extensions where this hook is called, we could make the work
of Follow mode quite a lot easier, by letting it rely on the display
engine instead of trying to maneuver the display engine to do what it
wants.
