I was thinking that limited the size of the output field to 64 bytes. But
reading vsprintf.c again, it appears it's actually the size of the binary blob
that it's converting to hex that's limited to 64 bytes.

I would prefer shorter lines - 128 bytes of hex still isn't entirely readable,
even with separators interpolated, but I'll add this.
