This got me thinking how quagga could use wider terminals - xterm
will handle plenty more than 80 chars, and when doing IPv6 stuff,
it would be a real help

I did a quick grep thru the code, looking for occurances of '80',
or '79', or even WIDTH, but didn't look close enough , or went

Anyone know where and how the code enforces the 80 character
limit ?

(And no, I'm not advocating changing the default width - As other
posters have mentioned, it would break people's scripts etc, but
the ability to change a #define to allow quagga to handle 132

All the Best
