Well, we could actually set the wrap value to 0, which would mean always
wrap. That wouldn't be making any assumption about the user's terminal
window size ;-)
Here are two examples, one of which is with exactly Marko's patch which
doesn't change the wrap value (i.e. leaves it at -1, meaning no wrap) ,
the other sets it at 0. The example is a view that is the same as
Personally I find the wrapped case MUCH more readable. I guess anything
