Depending on the line spacing (and the font being used), 85 characters could be
too much already (Knuth recommends something like 66 characters per line).
My preference absolutely is:
1) A reasonable window size, meaning NOT too wide, because your eyes get lost
while reading such long lines.
2) A reasonable default font size (with at most 72 characters per line)
3) Flowed text so that a resized window rearranges the text being displayed

So the most terrible solution would be a very wide window with tiny font and
scrollbars for both dimensions (the current example almost has it all).
