Maybe extremely naive question, but what would be the harm in actually
showing all that invisible and visible-but-you-just-can-not-see-it
text to the user to begin with?  It would take care of all these
problems.  (Except for the infinite loops which are a different
problem and need to be addressed regardless.)  Another confusing thing
about the display property is that the involved string of text remains
impossible to see (to avoid the term invisible) when yanked inside
emacs, but all of a sudden appears out of nowhere when yanked into,
say, an xterm?  On the other hand the "really invisible" text becomes
also visible (by default) when yanked inside emacs, adding to the

Some of the hidden text is actually informative.
