There's also refill-mode, which is auto-fill but works automatically
when editing in the middle of a line. It requires double-spacing
between paragraphs, though. Adjacent lines always get slurped up.

Like auto-fill, refill is a toggle. I bound both to function keys so I
can pop them on and off as I write, depending on which is most useful
at that point.
