On the system where this editing takes place: GNU Emacs 22.3.1.
This does not have this command. I could look if it is possible to
update it.

By the way the command is 'visual-line-mode' instead off
'visual-lines-mode'. I think 'visual-lines-mode' would be better.

In the org-document I edit I use tables. I do not want those to be
wrapped, because that does look bad. And in longlines-mode it went
severall times wrong. And when editing the 'normal' text it would be
nice to see the unwrapped tables.
By the way I prefer longlines-mode, because this wraps at fill-column
instead of at the right window edge.
