>- the 80-column rule: is it time to upgrade to 96?
Oh no please spare us. Today we have the right end at column 80. People do occassionally go over that. And that's totally ok.
Now, if the right end was extended to 96, people would start writing lines with up to 112 chars in length, and the story re-begins. NO THANKS.
