This is simply because the trivialities need to be dealt with before the
larger issues can be tackled: you need to be able to get a line on screen
before you can break it up to fit into the available space there.

It's a case of being able to walk before attempting to run, I believe. Or
perhaps Manfred has already solved all of these harder programs and now
just wants to implement his solutions... :-)

This is certainly an interesting problem, and I would hope that allowance
for it has been (or will be) made in the design of the program.
