In my experience, the initial activation of the major mode is not
part of the problem.  Could you point out an example where that is
a contributing factor?

Conversely, knowing which mode was selected is not only beneficial,
but (I think) crucial, as we *need* to filter out cases where it's
100% fine for lines to be extremely long (any binary file format,
for example).  so-long.el tests the original major mode against
`so-long-target-modes' to perform that filtering.

As such I don't think bypassing `set-auto-mode' is an option.
Or at minimum you need to know what that mode was, even if it is
never called.

e.g. I tried opening a 50M bzipped tar file with your code several
minutes ago, and I'm still waiting for that instance to finish
thinking about it.
