    Could M-X Fill Long Comment be fixed to act more like M-Q?
    Specifically, if I have a set of comments delineated by whilespace, it
    should treat the whitespace like a paragraph break, and only
    comment-fill the "paragraph" I'm editing.  I could get the old behaviour
    by marking a region.

    3.  M-X Fill Long Comment should only fill one paragraph, as with m-Q.
    (my only argumet is consistency...)

In the source.  Paragraphs are delimited by blank lines (or blank comment
lines), but not changes in indentation.

    When it computes the minimum comment width, it should ignore lines that
    contain only the comment character.  Does this make sense?

This is a side effect of the above.
