Personally, I prefer no wrapping, because it is easier for me to use only 
Up/Down arrow keys, yet locate entries easily. Since I am lazy, I don't want 
to look for Home or End (some keyboards really suck for them!), so when I 
just want to jump to somewhere near to the end, I only keep pushing Down, and 
wait for the cursor to stop. And, this is consistent with Dired mode in 
Emacs, Directory Listing in VIM, and, of course, with GRUB Legacy.
