Wow, I totally forgot about that. =) Good thing you remembered!

Anyway, Marvin, you (or someone) will probably be able to update that
code and get it to work for you, if you don't mind having checkboxes
instead of TODO. If you want it to work for plain headings, we could
probably figure out a custom function that updates numbers in
parentheses with the number of child headings. (Assuming you don't have
numbers in parentheses generally, or maybe we should use curly braces
instead? Decisions, decisions...) It's likely to be code that's going to
be in your custom config, since the need seems uncommon. =)
