This is not BROKEN. 

If you believe it is broken, please tell us *how* it is broken. What effect does
it have? What does not work? What part of the spec does it violate?

To test this out, I wrote a little test - attached. The result for your manifest is

test:
    [javac] Compiling 1 source file
     [java] Class path = ResponseGenerator.jar TestSequences.jar
commons-beanutils.jar commons-collections.jar commons-digester.jar
commons-fileupload.jar commons-lang.jar commons-lo
gging.jar commons-validator.jar jakarta-oro.jar struts-legacy.jar struts.jar

which indicates the manifest has been put back together correctly.

Is your problem just that this looks bad? 

Your proposed change will break for any classpath entry which is longer than 70
characters (and even less for the first entry in the classpath).
