I really like codemirror but it's current version currently has a huge
drawback: no line wrapping.

When a user copy&paste a long query into the the editor it becomes an
unnerving hassle to edit the query. Like in my example:

It results in the codemirror extending extending really far
horizontally and you get 2 scrollbars. And whenever you type something
the scrollbars shift to the left again, somehow.

Maybe there's some plugin available we could use to remedy that.
