Actually, for archival reasons, it's usually better to post unrelated
requests separately. But since I saw it and it was easy enough to
implement, it's no problem.

In r1303, this limit was removed completely (well, actually, it's now
the largest number representable in the "int" data type; on my system,
that's 2147483647).

I decided against the 0 = unwrap alias, as it's difficult to understand
for the casual user (in fact, line length = 0 doesn't really make any
sense). Instead, I added a new point "Unwrap" (that actually performs
the same action as wrapping with the upper bound for the line length). I
hope that's OK for you.
