Martin,

Check out Source#current_line.  Line number support in REXML is
limited at the moment, since a "line" for REXML isn't something ending
in a "\n", but is something ending in ">".  I've been considering ways
of counting "\n" lines without imposing a significant performance
penalty, but have had little luck.
