You should have a regulated wrapping because else you have 3000 char 
line monsters.

I read somewhere between 12 and 14 words is a good line length, in terms 
of  readability, in documentation:
14 * 5 chars (average word length english) + 13 whitespaces + 4 
characters prefix = 87

I am fine with 80 chars for documentation. I have made good experiences 
with enforcing that.
