Thanks for merging this.

I made a few minor fixes to the docs.

One comment I have is that disabling bidi-display-reordering should
probably be removed from the defaults, because doing so puts the
display engine in a state that is not being tested, and can cause
inconsistencies and even bugs (because some portions of the code were
written under the assumption that this variable is never nil).

OTOH, I'd suggest setting bidi-paragraph-direction to 'left-to-right
by default when so-long-mode is turned on.

Also, I don't understand why the defaults disable
display-line-number-mode, it AFAIK does not slow down redisplay in any
significant ways.  Do you have any evidence it should be disabled in
buffers with long lines?

IME, truncate-lines sometimes makes display of long lines _faster_, so
I'm not sure we should disable that by default.
