Er, this is what I am already doing (see above) and not what I would  
like which is for the source to show, commented out since it is after  
the %, the number of the exercise as it will appear in the pdf.

But then of course, I don't see how this could possibly be done since  
I can't see how the macro could keep track and I was just hoping I  
was missing the obvious.
