Why not use flowed text? Wrapped lines are terminated by a space — Vim 
uses it when adding "w" to formatoptions, and I'm sure Emacs has it too. 
Then place each sentence on a new line. This avoids rewrapping the whole 
paragraph, the reformatting is limited to the changed sentence only.

Of course, there's always those editors which doesn't have this feature, 
but is there any svnbook author who use such an editor?
