The automatic wraps in the code presented in the message are wrong. The
automatic wraps in the bullet point list are, if not wrong, at least
presumably unintended.

I hope that clears up what I meant in this case. The effort devoted to
explaining this issue far outweighs the burden it caused initially. I'll
try to be more explicit when presenting it in future, to forestall this.
