Hi Nicolas and all,

@Nicolas: Thanks for org-num-mode.

For some days I turned on org-num-mode for every Org file automatically
with the setting

    (add-hook 'org-mode-hook #'org-num-mode)

in my init file.  org-num-mode worked fine for me.

Just one idea came to my mind.  What about adding an option to restart
the numbering at 1 for the first heading in the case when narrowing is
in effect?

Ciao,  Marco
