Feature request: don't hardcode target numbers. E.g., in my UTF-8 book, 
a new package (gdbm) has been added, thus causing number skew for all 
packages after it. Thus, constructions of the following form fail:

if [ "$i" = "082-groff" ] ; then {do something} ; fi.

Until this is fixed, I can't make my UTF-8 book compatible with jhalfs.

BTW, a similar problem will appear soon in trunk due to removal of hotplug.
