P.S. 2 cents: Maybe one should store the max counter for files in
.mhonarc.db. Scanning directories to get the current maximum

service routine to for all filters like:
$cur_max = incr_file_cnt ($ext);
and decr_file_cnt to catch errors.
I second this! It would also then make it easy to allow you to request
that such numbering be monotonically increasing (and therefor unique),
which I for one would find useful.
Or perhaps I have missed this as a new feature in recent releases.
Keep up the good work, it is much appreciated!
