I use kate for editing text, often consisting of fairly long paragraphs, 
which, really, is (unless something has changed) a line.  512 characters makes 
a quite small paragraph.

I hope there will be ways to both disable that disabling, and increase the 
line limit.

I have no performance issues with long paragraphs (lines) in (to me) long files 
going up to about 60 MB, using kate 3.8.4 (using kde development platform 
4.8.4 on Debian Wheezy (my everyday computer)).
