You may want to see if it can be integrated with screen-lines.el (which is
supposed to cause things like C-n, C-p, C-e, C-a to go work on
display-lines rather than on text-lines).
I expect screen-lines.el to not work well in the above settings, so I guess
the only thing I'm saying is that the screen-line.el part of the behavior
should be provided separately from longlines-2-mode since it's useful in its
own right.
