I would, if not for the fact that longlines-wrap-follows-window-size
doesn't behave well when the buffer is simultaneously displayed in two
windows with different widths.  This is not fixable without C-level
changes.  There have been discussions about this issue on this list in
the past, but I don't think it'll be fixed in the immediate future.
So the current behavior is a compromise.

That might work.
