I have enabled this option for my local dev copy of SlyEdit.  I tried writing a
test message to myself with a 132-column terminal and then reading it with an
80-column terminal.  My message had a few lines and didn't seem to be wrapped
properly - The 2nd line was wrapped significantly less than the 80-column width
and the rest of the line was on the next line.  Should this setting work with
local messages, or is it only for messages being shared via QWK and other
networked areas?

My local development copy of SlyEdit allows using the whole width of the
terminal for the message and wraps as such and saves each line as its own line.
I'm wondering if it needs to save each paragraph as one long line?
