Personally, I think that 80 is pretty arbitrary now, and not the best

way it should be.

It's a question of policy, which is in the purview of the maintainer
of the codebase. But since Python itself has a lot of Python code, the
policy applied to its standard library is going to be looked at by
everyone as having special status.
