This is my personnal settings for years.

[...]

I think lines of 80 characters are reasonnable,
but I would not reject a patch because few lines are between 80 and 100.

I would reword the doc to reflect that flexibility:
"
Line length is recommended to be not more than 80 characters, including comments.
The hard limit is 100 characters.
"
