For org documents, I switched to visual-line-mode and org-indent mode a
while back now after *years* using auto-fill.  Visual-line-mode without
org-indent is less æsthetically pleasing, I find.

I typically have one paragraph per line and this works well.  It may be
less efficient with respect to revision control, e.g. git, but the
efficiency loss is minimal in my opinion.

For LaTeX directives that I used to always put in #+latex: lines when I
needed these within a paragraph, I now increasingly use @@latex:...@@.

The only issue is working with wide tables.  For this, I do have a key
binding to toggle visual-line-mode on and off to make it easier to work
with tables.  It would be nice if somehow org knew not to allow
visual-line-mode to wrap tables but I would imagine this would be
difficult if not impossible.

For emails, I continue to use auto-fill-mode however.
