Yes, I agree that "nr" is a bad name.  I will rename the variable to

Hm, that would be inconsistent with "maint print registers", which uses
"Nr" in the title as well.  IMHO all user-visible interfaces should use
the same title for this column.  Maybe we can change that in a separate

Right, this reduces code and improves clarity.  Will change as

Based on your suggestions, I will adjust the patch as indicated below.
