does emacs do that? "autoindent" will help on the next line and it may
be hackable to support sensing the first, but I don't think it does it
out of the box.

. ..or one of these may work for you...

I'd prefer an intellegent wrap, I've long wanted ":set lbr wrap" to wrap
according to the left margin of each line. That way sgml like documents
can use long single lines for a given tag, which are nicely put away
"unset wrap" for document formatting, and a visual document structure
is preserverved while editing wraped lines. -- don't think that can
be done out of the box, maybe someone wrote a macro...
