Right.. but how does this work in normal source code? Emacs will fill
those too and I don't see why you would want that? Possibly
auto-filling could be made a part of the roxygen editing support, I
will look into that.

Leading and trailing whitespace are not carried over to your Rd file
anyway so personally I like that behavior. Sounds like you want a
quite intricate filling function that detects leading white space and
changes filling prefix on a per-line basis. Sorry, but I can't really
see the big advantage in that.. An option to not fill-lines at all
when doing C-c C-o could be possibly included though.
