   It would be useful for a few experienced Emacs developers to look it
   over and make suggestions.

I am not really the best person to make suggestions.  It would  be
better if longtime users did.  Here are some remarks.

I do not know what the version is that would be included.  I
dowmloaded 2.2.7 from:


After putting (load "~/longlines.elc") in my .emacs, I had to edit
longlines.el and put: (defvar longlines-mode nil) at the beginning to
avoid a warnings buffer cropping up each time I started Emacs, warning
about the free variable `longlines-mode'.  Just (defvar longlines-mode)
was _not_ sufficient.

If I understood correctly, we do not like code included with the Emacs
distribution to use `defadvice'.  longlines.el uses defadvice for
`newline', `kill-region', `copy-region-as-kill', `yank' and `yank-pop'.
