I think this is a good feature.

How about the menu item "Goto Line..." in "Go To" in "Edit"?  An user
has to use both the mouse and keyboard. However, the menu item is
useful. Furthermore, comparing with the menu item, the item on the line 
number of the mode line is more easy to choose; it is always displayed.

BTW, IBM's thinkpad note pc has a pointing device at the center of its
keyboard. On the note pc, it is quite comfortable to operate mixing
mouse clicks and keyboard input. The happy hacking keyboard is
inferior to the thinkpad's keyboard in this aspects.
