It currently isn't implemented by calling narrow-to-region, but that's
just a technical detail: it behaves exactly like

    (defun widen () (narrow-to-region 1 (1+ (buffer-size))))

Indeed, the issue of soft-vs-hard narrowing can also be looked at in
a different way, and maybe the best way to solve it will not involve
changing narrowing at all.  Of Then again, maybe it will.
