Fair enough. :) This is another case of thinking just inside the box -
the development environment I have here just have 1200 or so packages
and forgot to check the real deal....

In light of this I'd say it would be nice some sign (for example
"...", or "<"  and ">") before/after the numbers if there are
smaller/larger numbers then displayed.
