feature request - spellbook number OPTION

That's right -- I am specifically requesting that Takkaria add a new option.

Referring to spellbooks by letters is bad. Unfortunately, letters are ergonomic and traditional, so we cannot remove them. Inscriptions are clunky and newbies don't use them, but newbies need to be trained to use numbers. Here is my suggestion.

Add an option books_by_numbers that defaults to YES that means that any time you use the hook to select a spellbook you have to use a number and a letter is trapped and reported as an error. If choices are listed, they should be listed with the number.
