    Indeed. Unfortunately it is orthogonal to the line length limit.

    We should limit the nesting level, though I think there is no
    universally good value. What is good for one case (a function with a
    short multi-level if/for/etc) is bad for another (a long switch()
    where any added complexity makes it unparseable).

    So I think it just have to meet the author's and reviewers' taste. We
    already depend on this.
