Emacs filling is different from filladapt in one annoying way, even
running with -Q thus probably not my setup.

If you type something like

line1 word1 word2
  indentedLine2 word1 word2
line3 word1 word2

and then, with the cursor anywhere on line3, invoke fill-paragrah, you
end up with:

line1 word1 word2 indentedLine2 word1 word2 line3 word1 word2

whereas, filladapt leaves it as displayed.  And yes, emacs auto-fill
also doesn't handle line tags properly.
