Well, the output of \df+ is already likely to be wider than 72
characters, so I'm not sure the patch would really make the situation
materially worse ("\df+ nextval" is 118 characters wide without the
patch, for example). You could also argue that if the user specifies
"+", presumably they are less worried about a concise output format.

Nothing obvious comes to mind, but I'm not opposed in principle. Any
suggestions?
