It's not a problem. That's what we are here for :) Responses may not be so quick though.

You'd have to replace Textadept's *modules/textadept/session.lua* with your own in *~/.textadept/modules/textadept/session.lua*. In your module you would want to save/restore a state that indicates whether or not a buffer is wrapped (`buffer.wrap_mode`[1]). This should be pretty easy to code up. Just start with a copy of Textadept's module and start tweaking from there.
