AFAIR, use-hard-newlines allows you to avoid writing "soft" newlines
into the file when saving your edits.  Any newlines added by filling
are considered "soft".

My hope when suggesting use-hard-newlines was that you could then use
the fill-and-justify features that exist outside of visual-line-mode,
and still avoid newlines in the saved files.
