The problem also exists when making capture templates.  The solution could
be additional functionality coded in elisp that can then be used for handling
longer template entries.  As the problem is dependent on screen size, the problem
is likely to occur, requiring the patch.  It then becomes natural that the fix
is introduced without the template developer having to call the fix explicitely.

I assume it would involve some elisp and would be willing to word towards
a solution.  But it would be even better that the solution would be
incorporated in the official version of emacs.

I can send a long capture template.  And any additional information people
require.
