I'd prefer to keep the 80 columns recommandation.

With 80 columns one can nicely fit files side by side on a laptop with a 
typical 1024 horizontal resolution whereas with 100 colums one would end 
up with the hair comb effect thus making the code unreadable. Also 100 
seems close enough to 80 that I'm not sure it actually provides any of 
the benefits that longer lines are supposed to provide (if they are 
supposed to provide any).
