I don't get this argument. What is the real problem here? I've never faced on
issue on this point with macros before, and I've been using them for a long
time. In cases where visual positioning became a problem, I used
`toggle-truncate-lines'. I'd much rather have intervention be manual, than
changing the core behavior in ways that are hard to understand. It may well be
that there are times when I want visual positioning without feedback, simply
because it matches what I'm expecting to happen.
