Continuing the off-topic for a moment, for those who are unaware PEP-8 was
recently updated to allow for longer line length:
"Some teams strongly prefer a longer line length. For code maintained
exclusively or primarily by a team that can reach agreement on this issue,
it is okay to increase the nominal line length from 80 to 100 characters
(effectively increasing the maximum length to 99 characters), provided that
comments and docstrings are still wrapped at 72 characters."
