>From my earlier message:

   67 for the first line.  That is a given.  68 already forces an ugly
   continuation line in the apropos output.

   To me 70 for most subsequent lines with an absolute limit of 79 seems
   better than the current 60.  But I do not believe that this is a
   really big deal.

I meant that whether the convention for "most" subsequent lines is no
big deal ("most" is vague anyway).  I believe that more than 79 for
_any_ line is really bad and that such docstrings should definitely be
fixed.  I also believe that docstrings with a first line longer than
67 should be fixed.
