        Hi! I'd like to suggest a change to the split-line function,
defined in "simple.el" (I'm attaching a patch).
        Currently (as of Emacs 21.1), split-line simply inserts
whitespace when splitting a line. The change I'm proposing inserts the
value of fill-prefix, if it is non-nil, and then inserts whitespace.
That is, it gives you

instead of
