I was thinking of mentioning this, but you beat me to it.

I would like to add a remark in defence of line numbers. I always use
them with the exception of certain modes, e.g. org-mode, gnus. I work
mainly on large tex files and find line numbers useful in giving me a
sense of where I am in the document. Ok there are other ways of doing
that, but I wouldn't want to change.
