  I seem to recall that Guido had caved on this, mostly because he
received enough complaints about too much code getting shoved way over
to the right, in a column a dozen of fewer characters wide (which is
seriously hard to decode).  I don't remember if this was on the list
or in a meeting.
  If I'm mis-remembering, then we should presure him on this until he
does cave.  ;)
