Again, just follow PEP-8 (http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/)

""" Maximum Line Length

    Limit all lines to a maximum of 79 characters."""

The default python mode for emacs does this, as I imagine do the
python modes for other editors if they've been written to be pep-8

Unless there's a very good reason not to, we stick to pep-8 for
everything.  The case of subclassing existing interfaces is an obvious
case where we have to do whatever the parent class does and not what
pep8/we want.
