I'm not exactly clear on what you're asking here. If you're asking for
a traditional word wrap with a carriage return (newline) just at the
end of a paragraph, like word processors do, then try longlines.el. I
just plopped it into my .emacs file, restarted and it works fine.

There are only a few instances when I have it turned off.
