Thanks, yes, it definitely is so that blocks of text in Vim look
like blocks of text, not regular lines interspersed with
other lines that have just a couple of words.
I'm editing Emacs Org-mode documents in my VimOrganizer
plugin, which is geared more towards authoring text
than code. You're of course right that whatever export
method I choose will ignore the line breaks. But that
doesn't mean I want to look at a bunch of raggedy-
rag text lines in areas of my document where I'm using
links with conceal, which are common parts of Org-mode
documents. Emacs deals with these concealed areas
without having them affect line breaks; I was hoping
Vim would be able to also.
I may check into using an insert-mode autocmd to
dynamically alter textwidth if user enters insert-mode
on line with concealed links. Or some kind of function
to just reformat a block that gets called when user
decides it's needed. Not sure if those
will get me as far as I want to go.
But it definitely is a use-case that makes sense, as
evidenced by fact that Emacs has been given the
ability to do it. ;)
Thanks for the info. . .
