Performance-wise, the new line numbers are fantastic. Great job, Eli.

But I miss the ability to call a function to return the "number"
string, as I did in linum.

(The image shows both my customized linum.el numbers and the new
native line numbers, for comparison.)

To be clear, I'm not *asking* for it to be implemented. I can imagine
the performance hit, and the added complexity for a feature that
almost nobody (except, apparently, Yuri D'Elia and I) would find
