instead of



Stashes (12):

This is especially useful when the section is hidden.

I am considering doing this eventually. While I agree it would be nice to have this feature they way this would have to be implemented with the current code is to use a dynamic variable. I am currently trying to get ride of such dynamic variables as they make it hard see what is going on. That clean up might result in an insight that would make it possible to implement this differently.

I have just implemented this, see 08142e6.

It is not enabled by default yet because I don't want to do that until it possible to only show the child count when the section is collapsed. This unfortunately is harder to do. Also there are a few headings that are differently and those don't show the count.
