I would probably accept patches to move the arguments onto the next
line; I don't think that would make the overall code less readable.

In fact, I would normally put the arguments on the next line these days
anyway -- but that particular piece of debugging code dates from before
all this pointless fuss about 80 columns got started, so it was never an
