I'd be ok with changing the warning to 132 characters, which is another
perfectly fine historical limit. Or we can split the difference, and say

causing too many idiotic changes.

I find smaller limits help when you want to do side-by-side diffs,
or `git blame` for example, but I agree there needs to be taste applied,
so as to not mangle the code.
