It's not so bad if you build it with the --disable-wrapping-as-root
configure option and only use it as root.

In case you're wondering why I know *that*, nano is the least bad
editor on the standard Arch Linux install CD image (the others are joe
and traditional, breaks-if-you-push-a-cursor-key-in-insert-mode vi;
I'd be happy with ed, but they didn't provide it), and I just peeked at
the PKGBUILD to see if the Arch folks had needed to patch /etc/nanorc
to make it stop mangling long lines. Apparently not...
