I read (@samp{0123456789}) as definition of a digit, so when I first read
your patch, I didn't see the real change.

Maybe we all know what is a digit, but we also know what is a decimal integer.
But this definition of decimal integer is not the usual one (ie doesn't follow
the math one).

So, I think you should change that sentence but clarify wether the @samp is
an example or a definition.
