Is that necessarily a good idea?  Methinks it would get rather confusing
if 'ls' tells you stuff gets started in one order, while the actual
sequence is something else entirely.  Mistakes are easily made this way.

I vote for the simpler approach: Just remove the serial width limitation.
Then folks can choose whatever funky numbering scheme they want
(eg. factoring startup shell scripts), secure in the knowledge that a
simple 'ls' will tell them the exact order that everything will be run.
