I've noticed that the formatter has been pretty aggressive in overriding 
the right margin.  It has exceeded 80 cols in files which had conformed 
to that margin (e.g. DocumentReader.java), going to such lengths as to 
merge string constants which had previously been split with "+", and 
merging comment lines!  Cheeky.

I agree it is much more important to get a consistent indentation and 
replacement of tabs with spaces, but is it generally regarded as 
desirable to have files fold lines at 79?  If so, is it OK to submit 
patches which achieve this for errant files as they are encountered?
