From dev guidelines: "Code and output should try to respect the 80x25
size of a crt (remember when fixing stuff in the server room!)"
I think the 80 char limit is a bit too conservative in this day and
age (would you read a plugin help output on a terminal in a server
room?), so I'd say some higher limit, say, 132 chars. But I guess
that's just some other arbitrary number too.
Any opinions? In any event, I think I'll change the dev guidelines to
remove the "server room" comment.
