I've just tried it.  It works mostly well, except...

1. Enable relative line numbers globally.
2. Visit a file, put it in two or several side by side windows.
3. Start follow-mode.

The relative line numbers are now "global", in that they are relative to
point in the selected window.

4. Do something, such as C-n, which causes a redisplay.

The relative numbers are now "local", in that they are relative to point
in each window.  It is not clear how to recover the "global" relative
line numbers, except by restarting follow-mode.

I think it would be best if the "global" relative line numbers could be
made to work.  If not, it would be better if the "local" line numbers
appeared after M-x follow-mode.
