bug#28648: Make mode-line number display consistent when both line and col numbers are shown.

Apologies (again) for not reading the thread.
FYI, my library `modeline-posn.el' modifies the default value of
`mode-line-position' to allow for some features and customizing.
(I'm guessing that whatever changes you're making to the vanilla
value will complicate things for me a bit, but that's life.)
You _might_ want to take a look at `modeline-posn.el', to see
if it or parts of it might help.
It has, for example, option `modelinepos-style', which lets
you show info about the size of the active region in the
mode-line-position part of the mode-line. You can choose
any of these:
* "_ ch, _ l" (or "_ rows, _ cols", if a rectangle is selected)
* "_ chars"
* "_ bytes"
* the result of a custom format string and any args it expects
(There are some other features too, such as using a different
face on the region info when the current command is acting on
the active region. For example, a command such as `query-replace'
acts differently when the region is active - when it is, the
face changes to avert you to this fact.)
The code is here, if you're interested:
