I don't think that goto-line (and friends) are important enough *in
Gnus* to change the current `M-g' bindings there.

Wouldn't the "file:linenumber" feature require an absolute filename
unless the buffer local value `default-directory' happens to be
appropriate?  I'd guess that such situations are rare (sender and
recipient often have different file locations).
