The incompatibility was found in a minor mode I maintain called
olivetti.el, which only sets the window margin widths in order to centre
the text body, it does not display anything within the margins.

In theory, linum-mode.el should be compatible with because it should
only require increasing the margin width on an as-needed basis.
