This is something we're getting closer to supporting.  There is now the 
notion of "virtual space" in the underlying code editing widget 
(Scintilla) but we still have it disabled because it was causing 
crashing and we didn't yet have time to debug it.

So it's not available now but we hope to add it as an option.
