It think the user interface is clearer when minor modes don't turn
others off. I always have visual-line-mode and auto-fill-mode turned on
when I'm writing email and news messages, that is, with message-mode. I
don't write long lines but want to have kill-visual-line (C-k) and
end-of-visual-line (C-e) available.
