It would be nice if, in the status bar, there was a
count of lines and columns currently highlighted that
was continuously updated as you changed the selection.
This would be handy for geting quick line counts and
"measurements" of sections without resorting to shell
commands like wc.

    Changing this to a feature request instead of a bug report.

    I have implemented something that almost does what you ask
    for. It displays a continuously updated count of selected
    characters.
    It only works for normal selections (not for rectangular
    selections) and it doesn't work when quadruple clicking to
    select the whole file.
    I have added a patch (1043759) to the patch tracker.
