I'm more of the opinion that mhl *should* do some basic line wrapping,
but with the option to instead invoke an external app that might be
able to do a better job. I don't have a massively strong objection to
not doing so, but it seems wrong to be shipping mhl in essentially a
broken state. I know we've been doing so since forever, but I'd like
the out of the box behaviour to be good, even if a bit of customization
to call external utilities could make it better.
