I agree.

Both of the features I attached to selective-display
were similar to features that people found useful in another editor.
The feature of hiding indented lines makes it possible to see the
overall structure of a program.

The other feature, where changing NL to ^M makes the following line
invisible, might be replaced with overlays now.  Someone could give
that a try and see how well it works.  Overlays might be much slower
in a large buffer when most of the lines are hidden.
