I don't think it's a good idea to make it automatic, because one might
have some very long lines that one likes to peruse/edit with v-l-m and yet
be writing text that isn't meant to be line-per-para.

So, I would suggest adding a convenience command: perhaps
`visual-line-nofill'.  If v-l-m were off, it would turn it on and turn off
auto-fill-mode.  Otherwise, it would turn off v-l-m and turn on a-f-m. 
(The downside would be that two invocations of the command would not be a
no-op, but would instead set a-f-m to the opposite of your original v-l-m
setting.  I doubt anyone would be harmed, but that's why I gave it a name
not ending in "mode".)
