I haven't tested the behavior lately, but I thought we decided not to
do that for 'ls' and 'st' (after trying it)? If we are using an
unconditional constant width in 'st', it's apparently long enough to
fit "jszakmeister"...

I'm very uncomfortable losing information like that, if we can avoid
it.

With 'svn blame', we have all the usernames before we output anything,
right? So we could choose a width based on that set. There's no
pressing need for an unconditionally fixed width, as the output would
be automatically parseable even with variable width. The main reason
to have the width fixed within a given invocation is for human
readability -- so it's not important that the width be the same as it
was in some other invocation.
