like to do with vim - the line numbering alone is wonderful,  there is no equivalent in emacs (and I've tried quite a lot of  things!). So 

 Not wishing to discredit vim, I'd still like to ask what is missing with the solution presented at www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/LineNumbers


I've tried setnu.el, setnu+.el (or somesuch), and as soon as you add lines in the midst of a paragraph and then make emacs refill the paragraph, line numbers will not work anymore. It's especially annoying when you yank a number of lines into a paragraph. That's wrong with this solution. Vim is impeccable in this regard.
