OK.  It wasn't celar to me what you intended to do, because
find_automatic_composition can be also invoked on strings.

What if the multi-line code includes an if clause or a for loop with
just one line in their bodies?

If this is enough, then it's great.  I'm just asking myself how come
font-lock, for example, no longer slows things down as it did before?
Do you understand why?
