Or you can just add a <link rel="alternate stylesheet"> to the <head>
which contains the necessary extra styles.

In fact, why don't we ship WP with an alternate stylesheet with this
tweak? That way, people like me can finally shut up about it, and it
doesn't affect those who like it fixed width.

The alternate stylesheet doesn't have to have anything more than:

body {
	width: 100%;

...or however the fluid width got achieved last time.

I should make a patch.
