No period after "1.1" above - makes things slightly more difficult.

This might be a bit overzealous if there are more numbers with a period
after them.  Another way would be to add ^\(\**\) at the beginning of
the regex (and a \1 in the replacement) and go through the file as many
times as there are nesting levels.

You could also try Elisp as the replacement - see

You could probably use keyboard macros, too - see e.g.
