Actually Stefan's code seems to work fine with variable-width fonts.

I dunno, visual-line-mode is obviously a lot more code without a
proportionate gain in functionality; when there are wrapped lines, it's
so slow for me as to be almost unusable.

Given that Stefan's almost trivial patch works pretty well, it seems
possible that a mode similar to David's visual-line-mode, but much
smaller, could be written using Emacs-23-specific features.
