Not exactly what you were looking for, but it should be very easy to  
write a shell/ruby/python script, that goes through your file and  
does essentially a "search and replace", keeping track of how many  
examples it has already encountered, and inserting the appropriate  
number in the right space. Depending on the text editor you use, how  
you would call this script varies.

Not exactly what you wanted, but certainly removes the necessity of  
having to renumber things manually when you add a new example.
