RE: Changing line widths in the Emacs source code

Just another user here; I am always fighting for vertical space on the screen, I am one of those that prefer buffers side by side. I don't like multiple frames, but I usually have one fEmacs rame taking one half of the screen and some other apo(s) on the other half. Then in Emacs I have usually two buffers side by side. So for me around 80 char per line is just perfect. 100 would probably be a bit too much.

Hey, it's good to get data points on how people use Emacs.  It seems
like people these days like to keep as many Emacs frames as possible on
the screen horizontally, which makes sense.  And in that case increasing
the code width would make that more inconvenient.

I don't do that (I stack the frames under each other), though.
