Oh, that's what you meant by "remove".  Right, it flushes fontification
which did not need to be flushed, but that can be recomputed.
Of course, the overall impact on performance could be a concern,
although it's unclear how important that would be.  Based on the
experience that having many overlays isn't nearly as bad as expected,
the nlinum--ol-count limit could be pushed much higher than 100, thus
reducing the potential performance impact of "removing good
fontification" correspondingly.
