Eli, I was just able to begin some testing on visual relative line numbers now and I must say that is truly joyful. The speed, the precision, coupled with evil mode, absolutety fantastic. What a great feature. What a great editor.
Just opened a huge org mode file with the visual option and it is working just as expected. One thing I noticed though that can be an improvement:
When working with really large files, 10k+ lines long, having the current line display the abs line number can feel "to much" because all lines have max 2 number and the current line has 5 number so the fringe has to grow extra 3 columns just to acommodate the current abs line number of the current line.
Would it be possible to have like a toggle mechanism to switch the current line number of the current line from abs to nothing or even to zero? that'd be a great addition to this already awesome feature.
Thanks again Eli,will continue testing.
