       Maybe this confusion arises from the fact that currently
       numbers are displayed in the order reverse to usual, where
       the first number in a pair of coordinates corresponds to
       the x-axis (Columns), and second - to the y-axis (Lines).

   That is a good point.  Do people think we should swap them?

no.  most error messages (when they indicate column) use

for congruence, i suggest :LINES:COLUMNS (prefix ":").
this would degrade to ::COLUMNS when there are no line numbers
(kind of weird) and :LINES when there are no colum numbers.
