Unless someone protests, I'd say 112 columns are the new absolute hard
limit, and there is no exception for anything except tables.
Table compression (i.e. having a few rows with unaligned elements
following a super-long element) is good as long as the majority of
elements in each column are aligned.

Those limits only affect new code for the next 2 months starting today,
and if we're still happy with the limit after 2 months, the rest of the
code will be changed gradually where it helps readability.
Should we encounter code within the next 2 months where 112 columns are
way worse than 120, the limit will be increased to 120 with no
additional evaluation time period.
