Hello everyone,

I use vile in a terminal that is 90 chars wide.  However, I always
insert/edit with wrapwords on so my lines are never wider than
80 chars.
However, sometimes I co-author documents with others that use
the paradigm where a newline is a new paragraph, not a new line.
For me, by default, these lines look enormously long, so I
turn linewrap on for these documents.  Two questions remain:

 * Can I make linewrap also respect the 80 char boundary so that
   lines by others look like my lines.
 * Can I make linewrap do wordwrapping.. that is not cut a word
   in two if the 90 (or preferebly 80) char boundary is reached?

Kind regards,
