Hello

I want a simple function which allows me to insert a new row
before I wrap a region. (Because otherwise rows which
already contain information get disordered.)

Like

(defun my-org-wrap-cell ()
  (interactive)
  (save-excursion
	(progn
	  (org-table-insert-row 1)
	  (org-table-wrap-region nil))))

However the save excursion does not work: the  cursor even jumps
outside the table.

Example

| Nombre     |   | Qual | Comment                                                                                       |
| Jim Miller |   |      | % Some very long text: UB:23.06.2011 Wrong: instead of t use the third component of the vecto |
| John Smith |   |      | Not much                                                                                      |
|------------+---+------+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The wrap function does this 
| Nombre     |   | Qual | Comment                                                    |
| Jim Miller |   |      | % Some very long text: UB:23.06.2011 Wrong:                |
| John Smith |   |      | instead of t use the third component of the vecto Not much |
|------------+---+------+------------------------------------------------------------|

Instead of 


| Nombre     |   | Qual | Comment                                           |
| Jim Miller |   |      | % Some very long text: UB:23.06.2011 Wrong:       |
|            |   |      | instead of t use the third component of the vecto |

Have you looked at markers?

http://www.gnu.org/s/emacs/manual/html_node/elisp/Markers.html#Markers

Basicall you will put a marker, prettify the buffer, jump to the marker
and free it.

M-x apropos RET marker shows a bunch of files (including org) that use
markers.
