The “line number” does not need to care about most of what I
mentioned above, ideally it would reflect when there are carets on
multiple lines, but as the variable was introduced before this was a
feature, we cannot extend the format without breaking existing stuff and
instead a new variable was introduced with exact information
The format of `TM_SELECTION` is:
selection = <range> ('&' <range>)*
range = <pos> | <normal_range> | <column_range>
pos = <line> (':' <column>)? ('+' <offset>)?
normal_range = <pos> '-' <pos>
column_range = <pos> 'x' <pos>
line = [1-9][0-9]*
column = [1-9][0-9]*
offset = [1-9][0-9]*
