I thought the intent would be obvious in this small amount of code,
but it looks like I am wrong.

I see. How do you yourself manage a situation like this? What happened is this:

- I found a problem for multi major mode use of linum.
- Looking at the code I found some other easy to see problems.

Normally in my own code I just fix all the issues I see on the fly so
to say. That is faster since I have already looked at the code then
and knows what to do. Later (which may be much later) I might forget
about exactly how to do it.

Do you try to keep multiple copies of the code with different patches
in each? Or what do you do?
