Indeed, there are many times - notably all programming
and configuration modes - where you don't want filling
and absolutely not automatically so.

If you can hide markup, what remains to do is a search
function that treaties newlines and whitespace the
same, as it can appear as a newline in the source, but
a whitespace in the .pdf. Very doable.

If you tell me how to hide in AUCTeX I'll install that
instantly and try it.

I never tried Org-mode but I heard a lot about it so I
assume it is great. However for me personally I'm a bit
of a fanatic. I don't want any transitions between
representations. I'm not convinced I can write better
HTML, LaTeX, C++ documentation, etc. than Org-mode or
some other tool. But I'm not convinced of the opposite
either. And what tips the scale is that, if I run into
a problem with LaTeX/HTML/etc. I go right to the source
and fix it. If I used a [semi-]WYSIWYG, where would I
go? No, I'll stay close to the heat!
