I prefer my columns of text to be no more than half the width of the screen. I find them easier to read that way, but that's just preference.

What editor do you use?  If the breaks don't go in insane place, plus
with the "harmonics" in my preferred 160..240 vs. 80-character lines
.... what you describe is a hardly surprising and happy accident.

I use gvim, but I was looking at diffs in a terminal. The changes were mostly to function declarations, so I now see why.
