But it suffers from the problem mentioned in this thread, i.e. producing
paragraphs which have the citation prefix (`> ' in my case) only on the

`gnus-treat-fill-long-lines' and `gnus-treat-fill-article' are also far
from perfect -- the former often produces paragraphs with normal and
very short lines interchanging, the latter usually messes up citation.
