FWIW, I think Google solves this problem by using two space idents.
Though I suspect your note was trolling, I agree with you and find the 80 character width to be an anachronism. I've seen too many god-awful mid-phrase line wraps and trailing backslashes that could have been avoided with something a bit longer (like 100 chars).
In addition to code wrapping, I'm a little bugged by indented comment blocks with 80 character line wrapping so that fewer than 40 chars are available per line of text. It sucks to update those comment blocks and then rewrap them so that a diff cannot easilly show what had changed.
I think about the same way on this topic. +1 on relaxing guidelines constraints
The days of 25x80 black and white CRTs are gone. (Except I remember well green on black, and orange on black as well, CRTs ;-)
