I am personally in favor of changing the default to drop the S. Silently hiding stuff from the user's eyes is really bad. With good coding standard and reasonable terminal size, it actually doesn't matter. And on projects actually containing very long lines (e.g. some people write LaTeX code with whole paragraphs for each lines), showing only the beginning of the line (i.e. the first line of the paragraph in my LaTeX example) isn't very useful. I do not think we particularly need a transition plan here: it's purely a user-interface thing, not something that may break any script or other tool. Changing the default and documenting the way to return to the old default in release notes and in the manual would be sufficient IMHO.
