Filling code in Emacs

My friend Ryan has writen a neat addition for Emacs: fillcode-mode lets you word-wrap code just like M-q already does for text. It knows how to indent parenthesized expressions, break lines at commas, etc. It's not perfect, but it gets the common cases right and sure beats fixing up the indentation by hand when you change a function signature.

Thanks for the plug! I'm frantically tracking down bugs and testing with other versions of emacs and xemacs.

...ok, maybe not frantically, but I am fixing bugs. :P I'll post again when it slows down and becomes more stable(ish).
