I have a 80x55 XEmacs window, and my terminal windows are 80x24 each. I
think a window over 160 characters wide like yours is a waste of space.
Most of the time the right side will be going to waste. Even though
display sizes have increased limiting code width still makes sense
because using excessively wide editor windows gives a smaller benefit
than using the extra area for other information or functionality.
