That's a different feature.


As a different feature this should be in a different
branch||patch||commit please.

I don't understand the semantics.

I can suggest easy solutions:

- If you set it to a negative number (as you'll do, to compensate for the 
headers), what number will had
previous lines: negative (which is currently unsupported), or positive going 

The latter.  Or maybe no number at all.

- What do you want to do when in relative/visual modes?

Nothing: these modes are incompatible with the offset mode.

We should document that for the absolute numeration
(display-line-numbers t) in the manual and when defining DEFVAR_LISP
"display-line-numbers" right?

About the names I like the major/minor approach more than M/N.
