Personally, I don't mind it too much when code wraps a little bit.
But the comments wrapping after 80 columns *really* bugs me.  Probably
because code has to read slower than prose anyway.

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
