Just a comment from the peanut gallery here.  I'm the newbie who
started the thread, and after it was explained by dman I liked the
ascii art.  The number based one doesn't seem as good to me.

What I think is missing is a brief explanatoin of how it works.  The
the ascii works if its explained.  I guess the numbers would too, but
I don't thing you can really escape an explanation.  AT least at that
secion (-l I think), in the manpage.  There should be a full
explanation of it.
