This is too vague.  On what text will this property be put?  E.g., it
cannot be on the part that could be after the wrap point, so it will
probably have to be on the first character of a line.

Next, what is the extent of text for which this takes effect?  IOW,
where does this setting end?

There are also issues with cursor placement and continuation

This  all needs to be decided before it can be implemented.

And of course, it doesn't fix Lars's use case, because he needed to
fit several "columns" of text inside a window-width.  Wrapping at some
column is not enough for that.
