What about lines where cursor cannot enter?  Are you saying you don't
want to count them?

Also, you seem to be saying that lines that span multiple screen lines
should be counted that many times.  If so, the numbers are not really
"line numbers" anymore, but something else.  Moreover, these lines
cannot be communicated to anyone else, as their window geometry could
be different.
