Hmm, I wouldn't do it that way, I would use another switch. Normally,
switches take precedence over rcfiles, so -w should always do the same,
regardless of what's in your nanorc.
This issue has come out more times.
Currently, you could switch to wrapping with meta-w once you get in

Chris, would having some options without short versions a good idea?
Like this:
-w, --nowrap

(or some other name)

As nano by default does wrapping, you could use --withwrap to enable it
if you have it disabled on the nanorc.
Same for the other relevant options, like autoindent, etc.

There's the meta-w thing, dunno if that's acceptable for you.
