Well, for that reason my thinking was along the lines of reducing line 
highlight functionality to changing the background color only, or something 
like that, but perhaps some users might prefer a larger or bold font (e.g. when 
you can't see well).

So yes, let's either fix beginning/end-of-visual-line, or provide a function 
that does the right thing, and base hl-line on that (in visual-line-mode).
