Currently if you set line:-2 and the line wraps, the -1 line gets filled with
text. If you wanted to have the -1 line "free", that seems annoying, especially
since you can't know if the line will wrap or not.

I can think of two ways to solve that.
(1) introduce a setting to make horizontal lines grow upwards instead of
(2) introduce a way to make a "hole" in the rendering area that won't be filled
by cues, kind of like the native controls makes a hole covering up part of the
rendering area. Such a hole probably shouldn't move when the controls are
shown, unlike normal cues.
