Disabling the scrolling of long lines would imply you could only type
lines as the difference between the width of your screen/window and the
part of the prompt that prefixes the command-line. That seems rather
restrictive to me.
I think y'all should get used to using horizontal scrolling in
interactive line editors like the one in pdksh.
