Long in this case seems to be 'wider than about 70 chars'.

the line was longed than 2k, it will still wrap lines at 2k unconditionally.

This is nasty.  If it is programmed to refuse to honor my request, then
it should not bother asking me!

Also, 2k is too small, in my opinion.  Any reason why this particular
limit was chosen?  And any chance this limit could at the very least be
a configure option of some sort?
