I changed it to be similar to the number regexes used by the other builtin
patterns which are of the form '[-+0-9#_.eE]+'.

The other builtins don't do this. But it is probably better to have
[-+]?[0-9] at the front.

Ada numbers have the form:
- integers and reals eg 123, 1.23, 1e-2 ('.' can not be first)
- a '_' may be used between digits to improve readability eg 123_456
- base n (2 <= n <= 16) is of the form n#digits# eg 16#FFEF#
- base n numbers can include a radix point and/or an exponent
- Ada is case insensitive
After having another look I noticed it was missing the hex characters.
The new number regex I am proposing is:
I kept exponents containing a +/- sign separate from the digits
to prevent things like '1+2' from matching. I'll send an updated patch.
