I've been using this patch for months.
After the first week, I switched to the behavior above (the wrap code
gives up at a certain point). It is a lot better, try it for yourself.
If you try to cram too much stuff onto a line it's going to become an
even more unreadable mess of very very tall columns.
Wrapping column headings only gets you so far, delaying the inevitable a
little bit. A patch to squeeze out extra header space, or abbreviate
headers would be an advance.
\pset format aligned autowrap
\pset format aligned 80
