I think the default value should be t. I think longlines can be quite
confusing otherwise.

That runs into problems when the buffer is displayed in of different
widths.  This is one of the two main limitations of longlines mode (the
other being the font-lock problem discussed before).

I am sorry, but I did not follow that discussion. What are the problems?

It looks to me like the display of hard new lines should be managed by font lock. Is there any problem with doing that?

I am taking a look at Kim Storm's window wrapping code.  Probably it's
better to offer that from the menu bar, instead of longlines mode.
