BFN.  Paul.

Without a specific sanity test, this change may not last very long anyhow. Regardless, I don't think I want to make consistent line length part of our design goals. Why not just regex for each pattern or something predictably more consistent like \d\.[\d.]*\d?

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive 
property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an 
individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the 
moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of everyone, and 
the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it.  Its peculiar character, too, is 
that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it.  
He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening 
mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me. 
That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the 
moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to 
have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made them, 
like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density at any 
point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have our physical being, 
incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation. Inventions then cannot, in 
nature, be a subject of property.
