"Bastardizing" channel numbers the way those "sub channels" do, that's
a horrible idea!

Channel numbers are *numbers*, *integer* numbers!
There's a first channel, and a second one, and a third one,
and they are numbered 1, 2 and 3. Now what's a "2.1" channel?
Is that "ten percent more than the second channel"?

VDR stores channel numbers as integers. So if you want to
have a numbering scheme where you have channels "between" other
channels, you need to make room for these additional entries.
And the only way I see to do this is to shift all numbers one
digit to the left.
