If you mean reformatting this:
This is a sentence ending.
If we convert each newline to a single space, there won't
be enough space after that period.

then my wrapping algorithm handles it. However, it's currently limited
to English, because it relies on string.lowercase to detect sentence
ending periods -- this needs to be fixed, but I was going to post the
code and let someone who understands locales tell me what to do. ;-)
