Ahh yes, I was looking for that one too; it should get trimmed to 72
chars again because that's what email clients seem to default to.  OK if
I push the below fix to NEWS?

I suppose the most optimal route ought to be to generate the NEWS file
from a structured data file but I'm not going to get into that for now.
 Maybe if I end up volunteering for 2.33/34 I'll propose scripts to make
those bits easier for release managers.
