In print, e-mails, and usenet messages it is basically not possible
to use anything but fixed line wrapping, so this "standard" is not
a deliberate choice and thus hardly counts as argument in favour of
such design. Anyway, this has been discussed to no end and I don't
think public-qa-dev is a good place to re-open the discussion. Maybe
you can post a screenshot that demonstrates how you experience these
hard to focus lines?
