displaying long lines like WPs do?

I'd be very keen to know whether Emacs is, in principle, able to
display long lines of text by breaking the line, but only virtually
(as most word processors do). For all I know, the two possibilities
available are continuation (with "\" at the right edge) or truncation
(with "$" at the right edge). The word-processor-like behaviour would
come in very handy when you're resizing windows. (However, it would
mean redefining beginning-of-line, kill-line etc.)

Or maybe the easier solution would be to call (fill-region (point-min)
(point-max)) upon every resize event?
