Ah yes, that's good news for me.

Sure there are, but just because there are ways, doesn't mean it's always nicer or should be done. Of course some lines look prettier if you break them up, even if they were only 50 characters, and I think everyone should use common sense here. But for example, a list of parameters could easily be wrapped to the next line.

Not a coding practice, more like development (or evolution? not sure what english word I'm supposed to use here...
), what if your net browsers didn't wrap the paragraphs? Surely if some people ran netbrowsers from 1985, maybe you would have to manually split the paragraphs on multiple lines, but we're already in 2015 and it's obvious for everyone that the text is splitted automatically. Still people often manually split the paragraphs on multiple lines, instead of writing 50 paragraphs one after another. I think this should be the case in programming, it should be an obvious feature of a text editor so nobody would ever have to think "what if he doesn't have wrapping on the next line on his editor?". And surely people would still split some of the code manually.
This is just my opinion, but notice that even windows' notepad supports wrapping if you enable it, I think everyone should start to use it by default (ad if your lines are 80 chars long anyways, there would never be wrapping anyways, so the feature would be useful when reading other people's code and useless when reading or writing your own).

is one of the most terrible conventions for one to use in python, paranthesis do much better job at splitting a line in many.
