In the C++ standard, sections and paragraphs are named, not numbered.
It's probably easiest to look at a PDF:
So what I'd like to be able to do is have it say "see section
[funcs.src_unpack.3]" rather than "see section 188.8.131.52", and then when
we have a labelled section, lay it out something like:
src_unpack, type 3 [funcs.src_unpack.3]
I realise this is somewhat getting away from your original patch. But I
strongly suspect that the cheat sheet will be a lot more useful if
it has references to exactly what the new src_unpack is, for when
people need to look it up -- and it would help if people didn't have to
print out a new cheatsheet to get valid section references every time
we tweak the wording in such a way that the section numbers change...
