If you are asking for an optional feature that would display these
indicators as we did 15 years ago, I'm okay with adding it.  (We
already have quite a few optional variations on similar themes, but
one more cannot do too much harm, I guess.)

​Can you explain how that would work?  How would you modify the line and col display format?  Do you mean applying my patch but leaving the default format strings as they are now?

My interpretation of what you said originally was that you want to
unconditionally revert to pre-22 behavior, which is quite a different
request.

​We have two separate issues here:

1. The default line and col display format: I was suggesting the change for consistency sake.​  If it could be made an easy-to-trigger option on the popup menu that controls this display, I could support that.

2. The ability to easily change the line and col display format strings: My patch solves that issue.
