I would like to see an option on wrapping text email, perhaps in hook_mail.
Reason is that I sometimes use email for automated use, the recipient is a 
script, not a human and wrapping would be a pain.

I have no problem with wrapping being the default ;-)

Perhaps it can be done with hook_email_alter(), haven't tried that yet, I'll 
cross that bridge when I get there.
