There were indeed some new bugs (primarily a dumb one which meant it
was *only* testing the first line).  Hopefully now all fixed.

With this in mind, along with the discussion of longlines-mode, I've
introduced `so-long-action' (perhaps rename to `so-long-function'?)
which provides the following behaviours:

(*) Change major mode to so-long-mode (default)
( ) Disable minor modes and override variables
( ) Enable longlines-mode
( ) Custom function
( ) Do nothing

"Disable minor modes and override variables" means the buffer's original
major mode is retained, but all the *other* things which so-long-mode
would cause to happen still take place.
