bug#11354: 24.1.50; long lines (214 chars!) in files.el

Emacs Dev makes a big deal about line length whenever anyone submits
code or a patch for inclusion.  Yet you keep using extremely long
lines yourselves.
 
files.el now has a max width of 214 chars!  Supposedly the limit is 80
chars or so.  At least reduce the line lengths to something reasonable.
 
This is not even a code problem (e.g. long function def with many
nesting levels).  It is simply a result of forgetting to use `\' to chop
long strings.  Please DTRT.
 
Here's the longest line, but there are plenty of others that are also
far too long:
 
 
("\\`/etc/\\(?:DIR_COLORS\\|ethers\\|.?fstab\\|.*hosts\\|lesskey\\|login\\.?de\\
(?:fs\\|vperm\\)\\|magic\\|mtab\\|pam\\.d/.*\\|permissions\\(?:\\.d/.+\\)?\\|pro
tocols\\|rpc\\|services\\)\\'" . conf-space-mode)
 
Just chop it:
 
 
("\\`/etc/\\(?:DIR_COLORS\\|ethers\\|.?fstab\\|.*hosts\\|lesskey\\|login\\.?de\
\\(?:fs\\|vperm\\)\\|magic\\|mtab\\|pam\\.d/.*\\|permissions\\(?:\\.d/.+\\)?\
\\|protocols\\|rpc\\|services\\)\\'" . conf-space-mode)
