Hi - PEP8 says lines should not exceed 79 characters in length
( http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/ ).
So if you've got some code that looks like this :
raise fooMod.fooException("Some message which is quite long")
... and assuming a certain amount of indenting you're going to break
Use implicit string literal concatenation:
.... sorry ...
On a more serious note:
Alternatively, you could disregard PEP 8 on this point on the groundsMaybe, but it's not outmoded.
that the 79/80 characters per line limit is outdated.
