The feature has been added to git (de95ca6) and will appear in nano-2.7.1.

Ping...  Max?  Have you tested the current version of Faissal's patch?  If so, what are your findings?

Faissal has posted his patch to the nano-devel mailing list.  See https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/nano-devel/2016-09/msg00097.html for the latest version of his patch (against current git).  It has a command-line option too and a run-time toggle.  If you can, please test that version of the patch and see if you can find anything that goes wrong.

As you appear to be interested in line numbering, please tell me how you think things look.  I am thinking of removing the vertical line between the numbers and the text -- I find it too distracting.  What do you think?

The answer here at askubuntu shows the author forking nano and adding this as a nanorc option to their fork, would be nice to merge this into official nano.
