well, taking the risk of starting a silly flamewar and knowing that i
am in the minority here, but i disagree
for english text content should be seperate from formatting, so a \n 
after each paragraph is correct, your text viewer/MUA should properly do
the word wraping after the width of your screen or whichever width you like
(while maintaining quoting stuff like '>')

the person composing the commit message or mail cannot know the width of
everyone display device ...
the 80char max thing is more a tradition combined with text viewers being
shitty, than anything sensible

webbrowsers also succeed formatting pragraphs nicely and i think noone
would like all web content to be preformatted at 80chars

all that said iam not planing to stop breaking lines at 80chars in my
mails as the overwhelming majority of people want that and most MUAs
have a problem of nicely formatting such mails
i just think that the problem is more in the text viewers/MUAs than in
people not adding line breaks before 80chars
