I had my concerns when I saw Python Black promoted in other quite some time
ago, and the same concern strikes me now I revisited it.

I strongly oppose Python Black adoption for this reason:

88 char line lengths is a table stakes deal breaker for me (and I suspect
others), and since the black project relies on no exceptions or discussions
about details, this makes it a non-starter.

-1 for me.
