Yes, I got the email. Thanks for the feedback. I'm definitely going
to do something about the line length (there's been enough negative
feedback on that choice). At the very least it will be sensitive to
an environment variable. I'm trying to decide on whether or not to
include the 'stty size' trick or not. The platform checks seem to me
to be fragile.
I'm thinking of checking for terminal width in this order:
(1) Explicit environment variable
(2) stty size output
(3) assume 80 characters
(a) Should I bother with the stty check, given that's it is fragile
and won't work on a significant number of platforms?
(b) Would it be better to assume infinite width rather than 80?
