There are no messages. There is only an indicator in the mode line. I'm
attaching the image I sent earlier.

I apparently mixed up two different threads - sorry about that. The proposal
I made was in thread "mode line: 1) indicate region size, if active; 2)
highlight column # if > limit", sent 2007-06-06.

My bad for mixing the threads. "It", in what I wrote above, is the region
indicator. The description is in the 6/6/2007 email. The code is here:
