Hi Eli,

I've tested this for a couple of days on Windows and it seems to be very
good, with clear documentation in the manual.

Oone thing I often find useful is to view absolute line numbers from the
whole buffer while narrowed to a region (e.g. a single function of a
source file). This can be handy to limit the portion of a file for
navigation while displaying line numbers that match logs produced by
external tools.

linum-mode can be persuaded to do this with a little extra code, but I
could not see how to do this with the new feature. Please indicate if
this is possible, or consider adding it as another way to display line
