Hi,

I discovered age a couple of days ago and love it so far.

However, I like to make a little proposal for variable line width in the armored output, so
that users can copy/paste the output also on social media sites etc., or in messenger
apps, for the computer, like Signal etc.

Regards
Stefan

It could be implemented like 'age -a 32 (for chars per line) etc.

Good base64 encoders, for example, have this feature and IIRC older base64 decoders have no
problems when decoding such custom line width formats.
