Shrinking pcvt its ok, but I disagree to remove the 132 column mode.
We could split the code into another file, and enabling/disabling it
depending of some option, but removing it does sound good to me.
Ok, my dead box didnt support 132 mode, but I know a few ppl using it
and found it very good, specially for programming.
Of course, others can disagree with me =)
