Let's not go too long! Now that we have large monitors, some of us use
them to fit multiple editor and console windows side-by-side. A limit of
80-100 lines is still useful in those cases. Also some of us are working
on 13" laptops. And I'll bet there's some old curmudgeons in the Octave
community still running on 80-column terminal emulators.
