I've been wanting to work on this but have been away at a conference.
What should we use as the markup for this? If we do something
then it becomes something of a question of knowing if the author meant
1. 2517 text
I suppose we could key on whitespace here, so that "#2517" produces
the first, while "# 2517" produces the second. I also wonder if this
should be a wikistyle:
# %start=2517% text
This latter one makes a little more sense if we recall outline
lists, plus doesn't have much in the way of ambiguity.
# %roman start=3% This starts the list as "c." .
