Nice example, Bruno.... yes, "re-wrap" would certainly make a mess of  

It might make sense for re-wrap to consider [changed] indentation, in  
addition to blank lines, as indicating a new "paragraph" -- although  
this would still not make this entire example safe to re-wrap. For  
that, being comment-aware in some way is also necessary.
