No it doesn't. For 80-col displays the code is *already wrapped*. And
that wrapping to column 0 is vastly worse than the above.
If we want to increase the standard to (say) 96 cols then fine, I'd be
happy with that. But until we do that we should not create such a
gruesome mess for those who use 80 cols.

Well yes, if it can be fixed by other means then great.
