And also show count of selected lines of code (excluding empty lines). Working in embedded code I often have to size things closely in terms of characters or lines, and this is one place where virtually every minimalistic editor beats VS.

Please add this tiny little but really helpful feature.
why has the other one been closed? this feature is easy to implement and adds so much value... I find myself too often holding down <Shift> and counting right-arrow-keydowns until I know how long some class name or other identifier is. It would be so much easier if I could double-click to select and see the character count at once in the status bar. Please add this, or give information if it is possible to write an add-in that could do just that.
