My personal preference is for no justification.  The nice, even
borders make for a visually pleasing effect, viewed in the
abstract, but when I'm reading the content between the margins
the occasional extra spaces just get in the way.  Makes my eyes
jittery, so to speak.

[As an aside, what I *would* like is a way to maintain/obtain a
two-space separation between sentences.  I really miss that as a
visual cue when reading blocks of text, but I don't really think
it would be worth it to implement, if it were even do-able at

On hyphenation, I was neutral (personal preference, again) until
I saw that...

Good point.  Assuming the search fails on a split word, I won't
be using hyphenation either.

So I guess it's a question of how much code to benefit how many
users, as usual.  No real opinion there, just a general bias
toward less is more.  Except for my favorites, o' course :)
