In Python programming, the PEP8 recommends limiting lines to a maximum 
of 79 characters because "There are still many devices around that are 
limited to 80 character lines" 
(http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/#code-lay-out). What devices 
cannot handle 80 or more characters on a line? Would following this 
recommendation improve script performance?
