When you bypass large state-heavy stanzas via "if allow-point-outside"
in central functions like try_cursor_movement() and redisplay_window(),
people (not you or EZ apparently) get scared.

What will likely happen is you'll palm off the new flag
"allow-point-outside" (i.e., !keep-point-visible), which will default
off such that none of your state changes will ever take.  You will be
content with having tallied additional slocs.

The not-so-hidden cost of your change however is obfuscation, which I
suppose is par for the course in the emacs code base.

You gotta do what you gotta do.
