If I disable auto-wrap, the vi editing at the comand line misbehaves
when the line being edited is long, especially when yanking a lot of
text and pasting it.  I suppose that this might be technically correct
behaviour, since an extra long command line needs to wrap in order to
see it properly.  But I use the vi command line exclusively, and
almost always, I don't want autowrap in the results from commands
being sent to the screen.  Is there a way to get both at the same
time, without having to always toggle the xterm autowrap?
