Either your lines are insanely long (and got wrapped by the mailer),
or your multi-line functions lost their internal line breaks. Joel
suggested that you may have been posting HTML mail (you're not),
implying that it's worse than plain text mail (it is), and himself
posted in HTML (that's irony).

(This is a parenthesis.)
