I took the request (wrongly, I think) as asking whether the 5 on the
numeric keypad could be bound to goto-line. Automatic goto
functionality is a bit more interesting and would need an option to turn
it off because there are almost certainly people who use the numeric
keypad to enter numbers into files.
It's an interesting idea, but not one that we have time to implement
right now. It might be done through a script, but I think it wouldn't
be entirely straightforward.
FWIW, I also don't regularly use a keyboard with a numeric keypad these
