How it is possible to number not every line with lineno?

For example only every fifth line.

There are no hints in the manual.

Page 2 of my copy of the manual mentions the modulo option: "Print line numbers only if they are multiples of five".

And the command \modulolinenumbers[4] changes from numbering every five lines to four. – egreg May 19 '12 at 17:25
