It does, but it could still be extended to prompt for a number if one
isn't given; at the moment, as I originally noted, there is no
columnar equivalent to goto-char and goto-line. If it's not
appropriate to add this behavior to move-to-column, it could be a new
function, as I suggested; this also has the advantage that users might
reasonably infer the existence of goto-column from the other goto-
functions, and be surprised (as I was!) when they don't find it.
