I think we should have a defcustom that sets the default value of
line-move-visual, and a minor mode (I guess it'll be called
visual-line-mode, since there doesn't seem to be any better name) that
provides the rest of the visual editing features.

The minor mode would then turn on word-wrap and line-move-visual in
buffers where it is activated.
