I had a look at VS today, and it looked like until the last visible line
(even if there are already a few pixels missing) which time you don't see
_any_ of the upcoming context, and then centers the view on the next step.

A compromise might be along the lines of offering Eclipse 8-lines-or-so
margin as option. But even that requires someone to put a patch on
