I do like the proposed feature. However, I'd prefer if instead of
introducing a whole new functionality we could extend the existing one.
This approach generally leads to code that is easier to maintain.

From the above, the verse numbering looks simply like an extended line
numbering. Normal line numbering can be thought as a subset of the
proposed features.
