hmm.. yes, adding a macro to each line is really annoying..
but the output, the indent in particular, is exactly what I expected!

I tried another aproach that *almost* pleased me: adding a space before
each line so that each line is a paragraph! the problem with this
solution is the indent of the wrapped lines of the paragraph:

start of very long line
continuation of very long line

start of very long line
continuation of very long line

is there a way (a register) to set the indent of the wrapped lines of a
paragraph?  that would be 99.99% perfect!

TIA!
