I'm OK with the above, as long as the Gnus developers are allowed to go
over 80 in the first line within reason.  So we'll keep the first line
short, but if it has to go a little over 80, we'll make sure the really
important stuff is at the very beginning.

Can we highlight past the 80th char in commit log buffers?  That would
be a nice passive indicator of a problem.

CC to ding for any stray comments.
