As a rookie, I did not want to start bothering you with this, but since you bring the topic...
I think 80 is somewhat outdated: screens are now bigger, and especially wider (16:9 vs 4:3).
I think we should allow a greater line length to reduce the code height (the number of lines).
My preference is 100 characters per line.
