I don't think so, I would not know how to do this.  Emacs uses
regular expressions to detect paragraphs, and these are matched
against the beginning of a line.

I think this would mean implementing our own
paragraph-filling functions.  Too much work for now...

Same here - I guess this could in some ways be seen as bug in Emacs,
but I am not really sure.
