It all depends on what pages one accesses frequently, I suppose.

For myself, one of the TEXTAREA pages that I frequently access and
edit is the Guest Appearances form at

On my 80-col terminal, the TEXTAREA width is rendered somewhere around
50-60 chars in width.  Typical data length is 70-100 chars.

So I now get prompted about "wrapping" nearly every time I access/edit
this form (which is typically 1-3 times/day, or thereabout).  It's really
annoying not being able to turn it (wrap prompting) off entirely.
