Hack to make rendering of large text results faster
Currently the used JEditorPane is slow when using large texts, as it
tries to find good places to break words.

This hack disables word wrapping by using non-wrapping views
for every element in the JEditorPane.

Introduce a new setting view.results.tree.simple_view_limit for view results tree

This setting is used to decide, whether the text view should switch to a simpler
view model. That can help to get rid of UI unresponsiveness on large contents.

Closes #706

# Even with the above setting the UI can be unresponsive on large contents in the text view,
# so we allow to switch to a simpler view mode, that is faster, but does not break lines.
# Can be switched off by setting it to -1
