 That's old an internal matter, exposed as default wrap width 78
 instead of rfc2849's max 76.

 This ITS is about the new --ldif-wrap option.  The tools can just
 subtract 2 from the input value and otherwise keep the current code.

 (I do think we should throw away the old bug-compat code and
 fix the default 78 to 76, but not in RE24.  And I note the bug-
 compat comment claims it's off by 1 while it's actually 2:)
