True. In that case moving it as an option (with sane defaults) did seem like
a better way. So attached is a reworked patch that puts two options in
1. A checkbox (in preferences tab) that applies to line numbers universally.
2. One checkbox (in the Query tab) specific to the SQL Query window.
The defaults ensure that the we maintain status quo (i.e. Line numbers are
enabled for Functions/Triggers but disabled for Query window).

This has been turned on and off repeatedly over the years. I think the
main problem is that some people have quite long scripts for which the
line numbers start to take up a lot of room. I wouldn't be opposed to
making it a configurable option though... but many of the options in
the query tool actually affect other instances of the styled text
control as well. I wonder if now is the time to think about moving
them to the main options dialogue?
