Ugh, I hate that. Can we change that to more like 140 chars, or no wrapping?

Subject: RE: Code formatting for patch submissions
I wrote Adobe's coding guidelines for ActionScript and I noticed a few ways in which this
formatting doesn't match what the framework's current conventions:

1. We wrap lines at 80 characters.

2. We make the first line of a multiline comment be /* or /** with no text.

3. We put an asterisk on every line of a multiline comment.

4. We line up the asterisks in a multiline comment.

5. We use two spaces after the asterisks so that the text starts at the same indent position
as code.

Just pushed the button in the preferences  marked "Set to Adobe standards". I believe it
has a couple of differences to what the "standards" are now but it's a good start.
