Have you tried using long-lines mode?  I used to use auto-fill but I
didn't like how it interoperated with other programs that I used.  I
prefer text to just be all one line unless I explicitly put a line
break in.  Of course, with longlines you can still turn it off briefly
and fill the text and then turn it back on if you want literal line
breaks when you're done.
