This is a workaround for the issue of large 'minified' files of programming code (i.e. code that has been compacted into the smallest file size possible, which often entails removing newlines should they not be strictly necessary) bringing Emacs to its knees on account of the relevant modes not being (remotely) optimised for that use-case.

When the lines in a buffer are so long that performance could suffer to an unacceptable degree, we say "so long"* to the buffer's major mode, and invoke something much more basic in its place (including disabling minor modes which are considered to affect performance noticeably).

See and the commentary in so-long.el for more details.
