Ahem well, auto-fill does this without a problem. I always thought that
auto-fill is so to speak "less than" the fill-paragraph-function since
it only works linewise. That is why all these packages which want to
emulate a more word process sort of filling use the
fill-paragraph-function but have at the same time to avoid the overkill
of calling the function with every keystroke.
So I am surprised that auto-fill does what I want but the
fill-paragraph-function does not.
I would have had expected the other way around.
