80 columns is a sane default. Why are you trying to keep a discussion
alive which has been dead for hours?
For source-code, I even go for 75 columns and try not to exceed this limit
by more than 3 columns. It's more of a biological thing, given we humans
can only scan a line up to a certain length comfortably.
