Thank you for this, Florian. The one thing I had hoped for when I initiated
this change was that one can write "n-1" just like "n+1", but that doesn't
quite work yet, probably because you have some special syntax for what used to
be negative numerals. This may ease the conversion, but can we get rid of it
