What's wrong with it, please?

* In part, it was instinct. When writing C++TMP we had a 65-column
  limit for code samples

* In order to avoid making it too wide to read without scrolling in
  all reasonably-sized browser windows. I really hate that.

* The original version of the guide had one more sidebar, which would
  have collided with that text.

I'm open to changes, though.
