Oh, very useful, and vim-like as well.. very nice.

Although what I had in mind was something that would display permanently
and that would refresh itself automatically when the cursor is moved,
similar to Vim's 'statusline' items 'l' and 'v'.

Since I already use Ctrl-G as my screen escape key, I need to do a
Ctrl-g g, of course.
