How about 1000? I don't particularly mind if the site grows a
scrollbar in my default width (as long as the center part doesn't
extend off off the side, but it won't) but it should try to avoid
looking silly.

The reason my browser is 900px wide by default is that this is about
the limit where pages that are just text become too wide to be
legible. It's easy to click maximize when wanted.

A lot of people out there don't seem to care about this problem (don't
ask me why) but I can't imagine I'm the only person with a
narrowish-by-default browser.

That seems fine to me as well.

I was thinking since that's
the pkgsrc portion of

If you have other/better ideas go ahead; I was just trying to fill in
some useful links for the pkgsrc menu.

On reflection I'm not sure this should be done without a bikeshedding
