[Orgmode] org-mode and longlines-mode (especially tables)

Hi Everyone,

I am using longlines-mode with org-mode to do word wrapping. It is
useful in normal view to get wrapping at word boundaries, but it is
especially useful with vertical split windows (C-x 3) since they
default to not wrapping at all.

I have noticed a few wierd issues in org-mode related to the
pseudo-linebreaks managed by longlines mode.

The first issue is not really a big deal - if you are in an org list,
and are at the end of a wrapped line eg looks like:

+ adsf asdf adsf
asdf asdf{cursor here}

and you hit M-Enter, you get a heading of the most recent heading
level, not a new list entry. Presumably org-mode thinks the
longlines-mode soft-newline is a real newline

The second issue is bigger, relating to tables. If you make the first
line of a table and hit tab, eg:

|* col a *|* col b *|{TAB}

You get:

| * col a * | * col b * | |           |           |

so the newline that org-table-mode thinks it is inserting gets gobbled
by longlines-mode, or something like that.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a smarter way to get soft-word
wrapping in org-mode without using longlines-mode?
