I'm trying to figure out a way to change the behavior of org-fill-paragraph for a list with checkboxes. I would like the indentation to take into account the checkbox, but here is what I see:

- This is a long line in a plain list and fill-paragraph works as I expect
  it would (it takes into account the marker for the list in the indentation) 

- [ ] But when I write a long line with a checkboxed list, the behavior
  of fill-paragraph is to ignore the checkbox and indent as if the checkbox
  is not there

- [ ] This is the way I would like to see a long line in a checkboxed
      list. Currently, the only way I can achieve it is by manually adding 
      spaces in the beginning of the line

I realize that some people may prefer the current behavior, but is there a way for me to achieve my desired behavior?
