You're right about the status line being crowded though.

I think we shouldn't show the line count, but maybe show it in the goto
line dialog instead and maybe as a tooltip to the goto line toolbar

Also, I don't think we need the INS / OVR indication - the cursor
changes from vertical to an underline and this is probably clear enough.

Does this sound OK?
