Hear! Hear! :)

I asked about this a year ago. I do the same, I output java source which 
I copy/paste into my tomcat servlet.

I thought fixing it would be a good toe dipping into the povray source 
(and the attendant github control).  Oy vey!  What a bizarre thing.  80 
is hardcoded into the constructor of objects (not even, say, LINE_WIDTH) 
and it seemed difficult to fix it the right way. I opted to just fix my 
debug output instead to be less than 80 characters. :) :(
