Apropos of the second comment here, I would like to add a request:  
allow an option to turn off soft wrap and set a text width (a la vi).  
I don't know how many here would want this, but I would find it very  
useful as I collaborate with people who use vi, and without hard  
wraps, it looks awful in vi. (You also get unintuitive results like  
going to the end of the paragraph when you want to go to the next line.)
