79 characters not counting the newline character (yes, some places do not
follow this). We do not use tabs neither double-width characters, so we
don't need to troll about tabular width.

That being noted I really dislike some of the conventions (Our Hungarian
notation is sometimes harmful. The parenthesizing is insane for not
matching what about every else agrees on).
