No, that's still useful, since it shows things that've been around

80 characters is for people who use dumb terminals that don't support
any other size. It's annoyingly restrictive for anything else.

No, changing it from what it is currently requires better

years does it that way".

Also, please stop stealthily changing bits of wrapping as you go
