Re: Obtain X / HPOS with move_it_to at eol when buffer-display-table lin

Fake cursors are created/erased by hijacking w->phys_cursor.x/y/hpos/vpos and 
calling either erase_phys_cursor or draw_window_cursor.  The creation of a 
glyph/character on top of the cursor is optional so that a floating cursor 
anywhere is possible if so desired.

With respect to eol pilcrows, move_it_to gives X and HPOS coordinates for an 
invisible \n to the right of the pilcrow.  We essentially have ¶\n, and IT 
cannot see the pilcrow.  The X and HPOS returned by move_it_to gives us ¶|\n 
instead of |¶\n.  Stated another way, X and HPOS are reported as being on the 
end of the pilcrow, instead of the beginning of the pilcrow.

My preference would be to continue using the built-in method for 
drawing/erasing cursors -- i.e., let erase_phys_cursor and draw_window_cursor 
do all the work for us, and we only need to give them precise coordinates 

Perhaps there is some way to help move_it_to see the pilcrow, or at least 
pretend that it exists?

  /* EXAMPLES of (aref buffer-display-table ?\n):  [(182 . 127) 10]; [182 10]; 
[10] */
  Lisp_Object buffer_display_table = BVAR (b, display_table);
  bool buffer_display_table_p = !NILP (buffer_display_table);
  Lisp_Object line_feed_vector;
  if (buffer_display_table_p)
    line_feed_vector = Faref (buffer_display_table, make_number (10));
  /* Reset it.current_x and it.hpos to the desired locations. */
  if (FETCH_BYTE (IT_BYTEPOS (it)) == '\n'
      && buffer_display_table_p
      && VECTORP (line_feed_vector)
      && ASIZE (line_feed_vector) > 1)
     it.current_x = ABRACADABRA_X;
     it.hpos = ABRACADABRA_HPOS;
