When syntastic or python-mode finds an error in my python file, they create a new column at the left-hand side of the window with flags at the lines where the errors are:
This new column not only causes buffer to shift (which I find disruptive), but also prevents my 80-column-width lines from fitting nicely in the window.
Is there a way to have these flags placed in the line number column?
For longer files, I understand these flags would probably replace overwrite the numbers in the lines they appear. I wouldn't have a problem with that.
set numberwidth=2). I know it doesn't solve your problem, but I figure it doesn't hurt to mention.
