I've found that a lot of the long lines aren't broken at all.  Not my  
first choice, but then I like parenthesis around an arg list longer  
than one or two items as well. ;-)

Just to back this up with facts...
% grep -rE '^.{80,}$' . | wc -l            ~/Projects/typo-local
     3135
That's the number of lines with 80 or more characters on them in the  
typo source out of 36k or so total lines.

But yes, if this is going to be the practice, it should be spelled  
out explicitly on the CodingStyle wiki page.
