   Any suggestions on how to simplify this?

                '(48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57)

These are code points for ASCII "0" through "9", and are already as
simple as possible, in one sense, but not in the "wait six months and
re-grok quickly the code" sense.  Better to be symbolic (not necessarily
w/ Lisp symbols, but rather w/ human-friendly expressions).

For example, you can:
- compress:       (number-sequence 48 57)
- use characters: (number-sequence ?0 ?9)
- go up a level:  (interactive "P") + SMOP
