We have one PEP8 check that is currently disabled, the one for 79 character line length limit. Would you be in favor of changing that, and enforcing the line length limit? FWIW, I think that the last time this was discussed was in 2010, <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37477>.

The proposal to avoid the two-space comment spacing rule comes from the mindset of making webkitpy less isolated from the rest of WebKit code. I certainly hear a lot about how difficult it is to hack on. Comment spacing is obviously not going to solve this, or even make a noticeable dent, but it does feel like a tiny step in the right direction to me.  I'm very interested in hearing what obstacles folks who contributed did have to overcome.
