I was about to comment that un-word-wrapped READMEs violate the
guidelines, but went & looked first... and there's nothing in there
about word-wrapping or max line length in the README.

Maybe there should be?

<urchlay at monolith:~/sbogit>$ find . -name README | wc -l
<urchlay at monolith:~/sbogit>$ find . -name README | xargs egrep -l
'^.{81,}$'|wc -l

Affects 5% of the builds. Shouldn't be too much work to fix, I'm willing
to spend some time on it if you want. In theory, every maintainer should
fix his own READMEs, but this is a cosmetic-only change, might be OK to
just do it?

Some of them are formatted OK, except they have URLs that are too
long. Not much can be done about that.
