I've suggested in bug 86630 a simple means to make it easy for beginners to
insert page numbers, so a dialog could expand the simplicity with more options.

Unfortunately this goes to far with what can be achieved, especially when users
can create their own headers and footers, which the page number needs to sit
in, and the page number style is part of a page styles properties.

Dont think its a good idea to merge line and chapter numbering as that would be
confusing, and adding page numbering is definitely not an option.

Page numbers are a simple field inserting anywhere on the page or in the header
or footer, so there would never be a single dialog to encompass what can happen
with page numbers.
