I believe I have given answers to your first two questions already.
(in my reply to Simo, and other places; please tell me if I missed
something) As for the post-reindent maximum line length... I'm not
sure either, but I think that 132 columns is a reasonable guess. If
there are egregiously long lines remaining after reindenting, we can
fix them manually.

Yeah, these are factors that typographers take into account when
designing printed pages. Baseline spacing also plays a role.
