Hey Koert,

I think disabling the style checks in maven package could be a good
idea for the reason you point out. I was sort of mixed on that when it
was proposed for this exact reason. It's just annoying to developers.

In terms of changing the global limit, this is more religion than
anything else, but there are other cases where the current limit is
useful (e.g. if you have many windows open in a large screen).
