Based on 'textwidth', lines are wrapped automatically to the next line
as you type. If the lines start with a comment leader like '#', the
leader is copied into the next line along with whitespace at the start
of the line.

(I've been messing with this aspect of vim lately.)

I think the skipped movements are forgotten. It's like the undo list
used to be before vim added multi-level undo.
