New submission from A.M. Kuchling <amk at amk.ca>:

Long lines containing no newlines aren't wrapped by the conversion process,
resulting in a very wide window.  See
http://psf.upfronthosting.co.za/roundup/tracker/issue1619060 for an example.

Perhaps the algorithm should be:
1) split apart the comment at the newlines.
2) determine the length of the longest line.
3) if it's >100 (or 80, or some slightly-too-long limit), run the comment
   through the textwrap.wrap() function.

You'd have to add some special-case code to avoid rewrapping code 
excerpts.
