The functionality it offers is not the same.  I believe this proposed
visual-fill-column package is like visual-line-mode, but where the word
wrap position is not the window edge, but the fill-column position.

If there is interest in the functionality it offers, it may make sense
to see if it can be implemented in C, as an extension of either
visual-line-mode or display-fill-column-indicator-mode.
