Actually, no, because paragraph-separate would cause the whole line that
ends with \\ to be treated as not being part of a paragraph, and
paragraph-start wouldn't be appropriate either.
Hence the "good" above :-(

Yes and no: there is no replacement for it.  There is
fill-forward-paragraph-function, which can handle some of the cases for
which fill-paragraph-function has been used, but there would need to be
something like a fill-region-as-paragraph-function and we don't have
that yet :-(
