So reverse out or provide more docs so people know what they are in for?

> HelpFormatter could be improved by adjusting automatically its width to the width of
the terminal. The width of the terminal can be retrieved by the stty command on unix systems,
on Windows it requires a native call. The JLine project on SourceForge already implements
this logic.
> I suggest to add a setAutoWidth(boolean) method in HelpFormatter that will try to get
the terminal width. If it fails it'll fall back to the width provided by getWidth().
