We could arrange for Auto-Fill mode to be controlled by a variable
auto-fill-mode.  Change the auto-fill code so that two variables
control it: (and auto-fill-mode auto-fill-function (funcall
auto-fill-function ...)).  Then we could leave auto-fill-function set
up all the time, and enable/disable the mode by setting auto-fill-mode
as with most other minor modes.
