Maybe linum should (by default) let users know when they might incur a
performance penalty because the buffer is large.  Maybe we should have a user
option that specifies a size limit beyond which linum would avert you of the
potential slowdown, or even (optionally) turn itself off.

That's what we did for font-locking, for instance (option
`font-lock-maximum-size'), before just-in-time font-locking was available.

IOW, maybe we should not be too quick to just ascribe this to user error.  Maybe
linum could be more helpful to users.
