[O] Line breaks in org-mode having version control in mind

I am trying to extend my usage of org, and one of the things I want to 
integrate is version controlling of my org files. This is obviously straight 
forward, but I am wondering about the best line breaking approach to use. In my 
LaTeX docs I maintain one physical line per sentence [1]. This way, when I 
change one word in a paragraph, it affects only one line, and looking for 
differences between versions is easy. Otherwise, when using fill-paragraph for 
instance, one gets messy changes of the file, as the one word change can 
influence the whole paragraph.

Therefore, as I mentioned, in LaTeX I use visual-line-mode and I insert 
manually line breaks at the end of sentences (or where *I* find appropriate). 
What would be the best practice for org? I understand that visual-line-mode has 
some problems when it comes to tables... What other issues are there? What do 
you do when you keep your org file under VC? 

Thanks in advance,
