I find -C useful sometmes, and not at other times; it
depends on the situation.  If I need to have a rough idea of
how long a given line is, I use -C; otherwise, I don't.
Most of the time, I don't because I need to have a rough
idea of how far down I am in the file instead of just a
given line.

As for whether it should be the default, I wouldn't care for
it to be.  Making it the default when not in pico mode and
turning it off when in pico mode might also be somewhat
problematic (as would supporting -d, for the same reason).
Maybe a solution would be to find a way to display both the
relative line position and relative file position when -C is
