Limiting oneself to 80 character per line is not an archaism. It has  
to do with typographic rules which were designed to cope with how our  
vision works, you'll find this in any book about typesetting. Going  
beyond ~80 characters, it becomes hard to quickly jump from one line  
to the other when you read (you need to use your thumb).
