Actually, the suggestion to fit in 80 columns is a recommendation, not
an enforcement.

On most debconf interfaces, short descriptions that extend over the 80
columns limit still display properly.....however, they extend the size
occupied by the short description part....which may lead to
undesirable effects, depending on the interface (think about text

Indeed, for many cases, the enforcement for short descriptions being
kept short cannot really be achieved, so please see this as a
strong recommendation and make all possible efforts to respect
this...which you can in that case..:)
