Cool enhancement.

Maybe the Texinfo documentation should now clarify that both -i and -v allow
arbitrary integer numbers, while -l and -w only take positive values.
The --help output only talks about NUMBER which is probably fine for the
terse man page and --help, but the Texinfo manual should document more
details, shouldn't it?

Thanks & have a nice day,
