One remark: If I am the only one who requested/needed such a feature,
please don't bother anymore.

While I was working with reveal.el I found that I cannot use the
'invisible property of overlays which has to be set with reveal.el.
If there are invisible overlays, `move-to-column' will not look at the
content covered by the overlay but at the overlay itself.  Now when
you fill a paragraph with short overlays covering some longer text
passages and delete the overlays afterwards, there will most likely be
overfull lines.  Therefore I cannot use reveal.el in its totality
anyway and I am not in need of it testing for a special property
