In my case, I managed to make longlines-mode wrap text while not wrapping equations (LaTeX-mode). I also got it to indent wrapped lines correctly. Both of which you can't do if you take the "change the margin" approach.
I understand this is a very specific hack, and doesn't justify unobsoleting the package. But for the record, the code can be found here.
