Yes. But whatever we choose, we need to make sure that the resulting text is
wrapped the same to avoid inconsistent output.
IMO we should do our best to keep the text wrapped at 80 characters in new or
updated texts. So I would prefer to have Ana's patch refactored a bit, to
change wrapping of the resulting from 60 to 80 characters.
