All true. Still, I didn't realize how annoying the new behavior would be
until I started using it. Formerly, when I typed C-x C-s I would
typically get a little message in the echo area that I could ignore. Now
the extra length often causes the message to take more than one line,
which causes the lowest mode line to do a little dance to get out of the
way so that the echo area can temporarily take two lines, and this is
quite irritating.

So, having tried it, I would rather not see these character counts and
would rather have the default be the way things were.

+1! Please make this an option, defaulting to the prior state (disabled).

I never have wondered how many characters actually got written.. It just creates a random noise in the echo area.
